All styles show up correctly in the Citation Manager (see

However when I click on Insert -> Document Elements -> Bibliography none of the newly imported styles appear in the list of availble Bibliography styles (see

Am I missing a step to import the styles also for the Bibliography list / Works Cited? What am I doing wrong?


Thanks for your help!

You're not missing anything. It is a bug in Word 2008 where the bibliography list seems to be hardcoded. Just pick the style from the citations box after you inserted the bibliography in another style. See

Keep in mind that if you are using Harvard Anglia (assuming from your screenshot) that you need the Extender tool for year suffices.
