    I am trying to use EndNote to automatically insert references into Word documents. I have gone through the entire process of activating the add-in and it now appears under the "Active Application Add-Ins" list that I can access through windows button-----> Word Options--------> Add-Ins. However, no Add-Ins button appears next to the "Home", "Insert", "Page Layout" etc. buttons on the ribbon. I have been able to add the "Developer" button on the ribbon, but cannot access the "Add-In" button. This problem is not unique to Word, the button is lacking from Powerpoint and Excel as well. Can someone please show me how to make this button appear? Do I have to uninstall then reinstall Office 2007 altogether?

    Hi there, welcome to the board!

    Usually this tab will appear when you have an add-in loaded, either through the addin_install event, or through the file_open event (file being whatever program you're working in) with a recognized add-in extension. I am unfamiliar with the file you've described. Can you tell us how you're using it? What version was this made for? Is there even a UI with it? Is this a dll for all Office applications?
