To Edit a Citation
In the MLA documentation style, if you reference the author’s name in the text,
you should not list it again in the parenthetical citation. Instead, just list the page number
in the citation. To do this, you instruct Word to suppress author and title. The following
steps edit the citation, suppressing the author and title but displaying the page numbers.
If necessary, click somewhere in the citation to be edited, in this case (Cordoba), to select
the citation and display the Citation Options box arrow.
Click the Citation Options box arrow to display the Citation Options menu.
Click Edit Citation on the Citation Options menu to display the Edit Citation dialog box.
Type 25 in the Pages text box (Edit Citation dialog box).
Click the Author check box to place a check mark in it.
Click the Title check box to place a check mark in it (Figure 2– 46).
Click the OK button to close the dialog box, remove the author name from the citation
in the footnote, suppress the title from showing, and add a page number to the citation
(shown in Figure 2-47 on page WD 101).
