this is a long shot - anyone good with using EndNote?

Just bought EndNote and it's great for books/journal articles, but I'm struggling with how to input stuff with a corporate author. I want to cite something by the General Social Care Council, but it comes out as, "Council, G. S. C.", as if it's Mr Council who wrote it.

I've tried inputting it as a Standard, a Statute, a Government Document...

Can anybody help please?

iirc, I think you need to add a comma after the whole corporate name, so the author is 'department of health, '

Put a comma after the corporate author's name.

Also, someone on here recommended the free Zotero application to be used in Firefox. I have not looked back. All free and easier than Endnote.

I tried zotero but it didn't download for me - probably because I'm a mac user (and clueless)
