Why is first initial being inserted into in-text citation?
I have one author appearing in three references. This person has an initial being inserted in the in-text citation:
I went to the database to change the name to look like it does in the others (full name from initial, for example), but it does not fix the in-text citation.
Here is the change I made and the two other times this author appears in my database:
The thing is, I can get the initial to go away if I completely delete the first name and the first initial. But I am bound to have more references where the same author appears more than once and I already saw lower in the document where this is happening with another one. I don't want to keep changing all the names as I like to keep them the way they are imported from the library for consistency.
Also, the same name does not appear again anywhere besides for this author so it's not trying to identify one author with the same last name from another. I'm using APA 6th edition. They are also all different years, 2008, 2009, and 2012.
Update... I'm on my fifth reference where I have to delete the first name or initial from an author or else it keeps putting the first initial in in-text citation. This is going to cause further difficulty in the references because the initials will have to be added back manually. I hope someone can help with this.
Thanks for any help!
