Working with Cite While You Write

For adding page numbers to a specific citation, you must edit the citation from within your word processing document.  Using MS Word, highlight the citation you want to edit.

From the EndNote tab in the MS Word top ribbon, choose "Edit and Manage Citations(s)".  

In the resulting Edit & Manage Citations window, select the "Edit Citation" tab, enter the page number(s) in the "Pages" field and select the "OK" button.

Note that for some citation styles, you might need to add the page numbers to the "Suffix" field.

For footnotes, go to the "References" tab in Word and click on "insert footnote".  Choose your citation and "edit citation", if you want to add specific page numbers to it.
