    Replicating references in Word 2010

    I know that references from one document also are in the Master file and can be inserted into another. But, what if I have a document with dozens of sources? Is there an "easy" way to pick all these up and plunk them into a new document without having to look at the first doc, find the source, and then select it, then go back to the first, find the second source....?

    I've never used master file so my suggestion might not work, but can't you just 'save as' and edit from there?

    I actually found a solution:

    Open up the document containing the references you need.
    Copy the bibliography, and if there is not one already, create it on a new page. You won't be saving this document again, so it isn't an issue.
    Paste the bibliography into the document you want the sources in. Again, on a blank page, since soon you won't need that either.
    Save the document that has the pasted references in it.
    Select and delete the bibliography form the destination document. The sources should then still be available for selection in the reference list for that particular document.

    Seems to work.

    That's the approach I use, though it can result of lots of references you don't want. Another approach, which is useful if you want to re-use some of the same citations, is to copy just those from your source document.
