  2. In the Export/Save pop-up box, click Continue. (Depending on your screen size, you may need to scroll down to see the Continue button.)

Some browsers may ask you to choose a helper application.

- Check Open with then click Browse.

- This will open a second box (the Choose Helper Application box). Select EndNote.

- Click OK to both boxes when finished.

- You can also check Do this automatically for files like this from now on, to save time in the future.

If citations fail to export, also check for pop-up blockers (which may appear as a banner notice along the top or bottom of your screen). Citation also will not export if you have a reference open in EndNote. (To be sure you do not have a reference open, in EndNote, click on All References.)
