How to Add Harvard's Reference Style to Word 2007

by Joshua Laud

When using Microsoft Word 2007's inbuilt citation and reference manager, you may discover it doesn't meet your needs. If you are a university student, you may be restricted to the Harvard referencing style. Microsoft Word 2007 does not feature Harvard as an inbuilt referencing type. However, you can download the Harvard style and then install it to Microsoft Word.

Download the "styles.zip" from BibWord.

Double-click the downloaded archive to open its contents.

Right-click the Harvard file and click "Copy."

Click "Start" and type "Program Files." Press "Enter" when the "Program Files" folder appears in the search list.

Double-click "Microsoft Office," "Office 12," "Bibliography," then "Style."

Press "Ctrl"+"V" to paste the style in Word. Word 2007 will now have Harvard style included in it.
