For my scheme to work, each list entry (the name, that is) needs to be on a

If you'd like to send a sample (one of your lists, for example, assuming
they are all in the same general format), I'd be happy to try to help.
Attach your file to an email to: maurice@stny.rr.com

Thank you Maurice for your example. I am afraid my bibliographies are simple
text files in writer.
Would it possible to follow your advise?
Thanks
