3 Dashes in place of author in bibliography

In my bibliography that I added in my word document, for some reason there are dashes in place of the authors name if I have multiple sources by the same author and I don't know what to do to get rid of them, so the authors actual name is written instead, HELP!!
  • This isn’t a bug. This is controlled by the citation style. Some styles like Chicago replace repeated authors with dashes. That’s correct for the style. What style are you using?
  • I am using Chicago, but is there a way to change it so instead of the dashes the authors name is there? Why does it do that, as far as I know I don't think its a Chicago rule to put dashes in the authors place is there are multiple sources written by the same author?
  • It absolutely is in the Chicago Manual to do that, yes, and that's why the style implements it.
    You'd have to modify the style or choose a different one if you don't want that.
