Can Microsoft Word make my words cited page?

by McWaters12 / August 14, 2007 10:14 AM PDT

My friend said his brother knew a way MS word could make his works cited page without him having to type in all that pesky stuff. Does anyone know how to do this in Microsoft Word 2007? Thanks -

A works cited is a list of sources you use for a research paper for project.

...something have to be typed. Maybe you mean you only have to type once, with no repeated typing of the same information ? You need to explain more of what you require, and the "format" of your research paper, i.e. how you present the "sources of information", or "examples" (what you mean by works cited ?)- in the form of endnotes or a References list page.

Here is what one looks like.

This is something of what a works cited page looks like - it is simply what the title says, the works cited in the page. The spacing is not done right but you get the idea, it is info from the source you use (book, website, magazine, microfiche, etc.)

... books, magazines, papers, etc. which you have read for doing your research... If you do not type in the information, how does MS Word know the information to "create" the page ? Anyway, can you describe the "process" ? Like: you write up your papers, and as you write, Word quitely create that page in the background, and when you have finished, there it is- that page on the desktop. OR when you have finished your book, you press a key, and hey presto ! that page mysteriously appears ?
