I have a student needing help with her citations in EndNote. I not that great with it, but am hoping to find her some help here. Also, please note that I am operating on the little information that she has e-mailed to me.
She needs to make the same citation change to a number throughout her document. She cited everything in APA style, but needs to change it from an alphabetical order to a numeric order.
I know that it is not much to go on, but it would be great if there was some idea that I could recommend the next time I see her.

You can suggest the user to change the style used in the document.
The output style set in the EndNote program will always be overwritten by the style set in the document itself. This means that while you may have changed your output style from within the EndNote program, the style in the paper may keep reverting to Annotated or some other style you did not choose.
This occurs because EndNote assumes you may be working on more than one paper, and each may need different styles. EndNote does not change it for all documents, which could put you at risk to accidentally using an incorrect style. Therefore, to get a document's style to change, you need to change it within the document itself. Here’s how:

If it is for a specific publication, she should look for that publication in the output style options (show all styles, or go to the help tab and endntoe output styles and search for the one she needs, open and save that one, otherwise she should try the "numbered" style out of the default list that comes with endnote.
