EndNote and Word 2016

On January 18th, 2018, Microsoft updated its Office Suite. This update affected the third party application EndNote, specifically the Write and Cite function in Word 2016. Per Endnote recommendation, the only solution is to upgrade to EndNote 8x. Endnote has stated they will not patch Endnote 7x; therefore, an immediate upgrade to the software is necessary to avoid any down time.
