Q. Write-n-Cite is producing a RFGetRefsByArray error. What does this mean?


This answer only applies to the older Write-n-Cite III add-in that created a pop-up box.  It does not apply to the Refworks/Write-n-Cite 4 Word add-in that shows up as a ribbon in Word for Windows and a toolbar in Word for Mac.

RFGetRefsByArray is a non-specific error message. Look for Write-n-Cite code that has been altered. Take out any empty {{}}. Delete and reinsert any references that don't contain the correct info. For instance, a missing RefID, a partial publication year, a partial author's name can each stop Write-n-Cite from functioning correctly.
