Endnote X7 suddenly not opening on Mac

Hello

 

I have been using my endnote on my mac for a while now and today it suddenly stopped working. The library is not opening. I get an error message " 

The document “My EndNote Library.enl” could not be opened. " 

 

I have rebooted the computer but yet no difference.  It opens on the web but the  endnote link is still on  my word but when I go to insert citation it does not connect me to endnote 

 

Please help! I am in the middle of my thesis and need this resolves urgently.

Re: Endnote X7 suddenly not opening on Mac

The library you had been working with may have gotten damaged. Since you have your data in EndNote online you can go to File then New in EndNote and create a new library (Be sure to give it a unique name). You can then go to Tools and Sync. You will say OK to the warning message and then your data will be pulled down from the web to populate the new library.

 

In Word you should then be able to use Update Citations and Bibliography to be able to use the document with the New Library going forward.
