Import from Endnote to Citavi covers only 48 % of references

Dear Citavi,

I want to migrate from Endnote X9 to Citavi6. Citavi recognizes the Endnote library with all its 7900 references (including pdfs), but then stops about halfway during import (I have a new HP Spectre with Windows 10 and 16 GB RAM and 1 TB harddrive). What can I do?

Thank you for your help.

Regards from Germany,

Hi, Felix

Could you please create a log file for us for this import operation? Thank you.

Best regards



Problem solved by following the advice in our manual:

As a precaution, we recommend repairing the EndNote library before importing it. To do so, start EndNote, but do not open any library. Then, on the Tools menu, click Recover Library. Select the EndNote library and click Open. EndNote repairs the library and saves it with a new name.
