How to reference an updated chapter of a printed book using EndNote?

Hi, I have looked and searched through the library website and I could not find the answer anywhere. I am having problem referencing an updated/adapted chapter of a printed textbook. The book I am trying to reference is:

Brown, D., Edwards, H., Lewis, S.L., Heitkemper, M.M., Bucher, L. & Camera, I.M. 2012, Lewis's medical-surgical nursing : assessment and management of clinical problems, 3rd edn, Elsevier Australia, Chatswood, N.S.W.

and the chapter I am trying to reference has both original authors and adaptation author (chapter 31). 

The problem I am having is that I cannot figure out how to insert the "adapted by L. Soars" in the book section reference using EndNote (bolded in the following reference). 

DiSabatino, A.J., Bucher, L. & adapted by Soars, L. 2012, 'Nursing Assessment: Cardiovascular System', adapted by L. Soars, in D. Brown, H. Edwards, S.L. Lewis, S.R. Dirksen, M.M. Heitkemper, L. Bucher & I.M. Camera (eds), Lewis's medical-surgical nursing : assessment and management of clinical problems 3rd edn, Elsevier Australia, Chatswood, N.S.W., pp. 802-823

I've tried to edit the reference manually, but EndNote would remove changes I've made to the reference when I tried to save or update the bibliography. I've also tried putting "adapted by L. Soars" in another field such as the editor field. But then it would leave an ' at the end. 

Can you please let me know if there are anyway to include the adapting author using EndNote, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi Hang Wai,

Ok so this one would be a book section in endnote

Then, you would fill it in like this

Author -  
DiSabatino, A.J.
Bucher, L

Year -

Nursing assessment: cardiovascular system

Brown, D.
Edwards, H.
Lewis, S.L
Dirksen, S.R
Heitkemper, M.M
Bucher, L.
Camera, I.M

Book Title
Lewis's medical-surgical nursing : assessment and management of clinical problems

Place Published
Chatswood, N.S.W

adapted by L. Soars, Elsevier Australia



That should do it. Basically you have to enter the adapted by information in the publisher field as seen above.

PS we have a page where we demonstrate manual entry of EndNote references in case you've never seen it - https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/endnote/entering-references-endnote
