I've a huge database of books in
Are there any ways to import this database into Microsoft Word, Open Office, Libre Office etc.?
I know this is a tad old but I've just pass through this experience now and might be useful to someone.
JabRef as my Reference Manager on TeX, it does enable to export to Ms Word easily:
File... Export - Select MS Office 2007 xml.
It works perfectly with my MS Office 2010 and should work with recent versions too. I do recommend using
UTF8 as Database Encoding as this is what MS xml expect.
Press the Browse... button and select your exported file
Zotero.org also provides bibtex plugins for libreoffive and word.
I have tried couple of above approaches on Mac OS. None worked. However, steps provided by Yifan Peng worked like a charm (took less than a min).
Here are the steps:
- Go to following location ~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.word/Data/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office
- See if
Sources.xmlfile exists. If so, create a back up of this file (e.g., Sources.xml.bak)
JabRefto export your
.bibfile to Word supported
.xmlfile. Name it as
- Move it to the above location.
- Restart word and start working. :-)
