Viewing Attachments

Whether you are viewing attachments in your own RefWorks account or from a shared folder or database, you will need to have the appropriate software for that particular attachment on the computer you are accessing RefWorks from (e.g., if you want to view a PowerPoint presentation attachment, you will need PowerPoint on your computer).

When you are looking at a list of references (from any view), you will see a paper clip icon attachment.jpg indicating that files stored with that particular reference.  

To View File Attachments:

1. To view the attachments from the all references view, from a list in a folder, or from search results click on the Paper clip icon attachment.jpg.   You can also view a file attachment by clicking on the View icon magglass.jpg for an individual reference.

2. The file name will display.  If you have more than one file stored with the reference all the file names will display.  

3. Click on the file name to launch the attachment.

4. You can save the attachment to your computer by right mouse-clicking on the thumbnail and selecting Save Target As and selecting your location to save the file.
