When I import my XML file with EndNote references in NVivo, the references are imported under Externals and the PDFs are not imported

PDFs in an EndNote library may not import into NVivo when importing the EndNote XML if:

  • NVivo and EndNote are installed on different computers
  • You are trying to import the Endnote file in NVivo for Windows and the EndNote file was created/exported on a Mac computer
  • You are trying to import the Endnote file in NVivo for Mac and the EndNote file was created/exported on a Windows computer

Depending on your configuration, the following instructions in the below link may help overcome this issue.
