Windows 7: Edit APA Citation style to remove comma

Edit APA Citation style to remove comma

Hi,

I am trying to create a new Bibliography/Citation style for Microsoft Word 2007. I am trying to mimic the ASCE style.

For all practical purposes, it is exactly the same as the APA style; however there is to be no comma between the author's last name and publication year for in-text citations in ASCE format.

For example, I want the intext citation to look like this (Suess 2011).

But for APA, it writes it like this (Suess, 2011).

For the "Bibliography/Works Cited", APA and ASCE appear exactly the same, so no changes needed there.

I thought I could take the APA file(s) in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Bibliography\Style and find out how to remove that one comma for in-text citation only, but the code is way to much for me. I'm not even sure if its the right way to get to what I'm looking for.

Anyone have any suggestions or solution?

thank you for your help, the links help in theory but I don't think its worth it to code everything from scratch and the online refworks option is interesting but i'm not sure if I want to install a plugin for this.

I'll probably just try to make do with what I have. Thank you all though.

ASCE citation

I modified bibword so it does ASCE citation. You can have the code if you want...I'm just not sure how to get it to you besides email.

Hi, wow thank you for your reply, my original post was in 2011 and since then the university I attend now provides students with free bibliography/management software (Endnote X6) that has ASCE style built in and many other features to help with research so I'm very well taken care of now.

Thank you again
