Thank you for creating a Vancouver referencing system, it is a massive help with my work.
I need to slightly change it so that it has the brackets are removed and the numbers are superscript. I have done a bit of research and I found the codes that I need to add or edit. However, I do not know how to edit the original code.
Can you please advise me how to do this?
For the brackets it is:
Just remove the content of the openbracket and closebracket elements.
For superscript it is:
Dim stylename As String
Dim exists As Boolean
Dim s As Style
Dim fld As Field
stylename = "In-Text Citation"
' Check if the style already exists.
exists = False
For Each s In ActiveDocument.Styles
If s.NameLocal = stylename Then
exists = True
' If the style did not exist yet, create it.
If exists = False Then
Set s = ActiveDocument.Styles.Add(stylename, wdStyleTypeCharacter)
s.BaseStyle = ActiveDocument.Styles(wdStyleDefaultParagraphFont).BaseStyle
s.Font.Superscript = True
' Now that the style really exists, select it.
Set s = ActiveDocument.Styles(stylename)
' Apply the style to all in-text citations.
For Each fld In ActiveDocument.Fields
If fld.Type = wdFieldCitation Then
Selection.Style = s

What part do you need help with?
The first part, changing the open and close brackets can be done by opening the XSL file in any text editor (e.g. notepad).
The second part, is just a simple macro. If you have no idea on what macros are, or how they can be used, just look online. There are plenty of sources with information on them, including Graham Mayor's excellent
Idiots' guide to installing macros
And it seems so simple when you know how!
Thanks for your help, I have dealt with the brackets and the superscript macro.
There is one more thing how do I remove the space between the sentence I wrote and the citation number?
