Accession number

I'm exporting from Endnote and importing into Zotero. When I import books, in addition to the PDF being underneath the reference I have a folder that says Accession Number. I went into Endnote to export styles and removed that line, but it still exports it. Do I really need Accession Number and have to see that extra folder under each book ref? Is there a way to make it not export from Endnote or not Important into Zotero?

  • by folder presumably you mean a note? What exactly does it say?

  • This looks like the whole thing is part of a note stored in Endnote -- the corresponding RIS tag would be N1 if you want to delete it.

    Alternatively, you can just do an advanced search for
    Note -- Contains -- Accession Number

    Create a saved search, then select all (ctrl+a/cmd+a) -- note that only the notes will be selected -- and then delete them with shift+delete
  • Thanks - deleted N1 did the trick.
