User Directory Appdata Roaming Microsoft Bibliography Style Example

Hello Aravinda,

Thank you for your reply.

I've tried your suggestions, all without success though.

This is what I did:

I went to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Bibliography\Style

(and made sure no files or folders were hidden)
But there was no "Bibliography" folder in the folder "Office14" as given here above.

As you suggested, I copied this whole "Bibliography" folder from another computer with Word 2010. This folder contained the folder "Sort", "Style" and 2 XSL Stylesheets "Author2String" and "Author2XML". Then I pasted this folder in the following locations in order to give it a try:
1) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

2) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\1043\Bibliography

(because in this folder "1043" there was already a "Bibliography" folder with a XML Document "BIBFORM", so I pasted only the content of the Bibliography folder from the other computer)

3) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office (x86)\Office14\

(because on the other computer I found the bibliography folder under this location)

4) C:\User\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft
(as given in MS Word Help)

I restarted Office and my PC each time I added the Bibliography folder to the above locations, but my Bibliography Styles in MS word are still missing.

I can't find the issue, do you have any further advice?

Thanks a lot!

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

At this link there is an interesting tutorial that explains how to use Microsoft Word for formatting references in any style.

Below I summarize the salient parts.

First of all, we need to download some additional formatting styles, and we can found some of them at this link. Here, we will find a .zip file containing several .xsl files, which represent the formatting styles used by MS Word.

What we need to do is to copy those .xsl (all of them or just the ones we want to use) in . Actually this directory can vary according to the MS Office version or the system architecture (32-bit or 64-bit). However if you look at the main Office directory, the directory should be easy to find.

Then you just need to close MS Word and reopen it. And you will find all this additional formatting styles available in the dropdown box, under the Reference tab.

EDIT: For some Office version (I had this issue with Microsoft Office 2013, installed on Windows 8.1), you will probably need to copy the citation style (.xsl files) in , as explained in this website.
