How do I cite an organization as the author in CWYW?

If you have a reference authored by an organization and Cite While You Write (CWYW) is formatting the name in a Last Name, First Name format, you need to add a comma (,) at the end of the organization name in EndNote to correct the format. 

Example:

Edit the reference in your EndNote Library by selecting the reference or right-clicking and selecting Edit References:

Author

World Health Organization,

Save the changes and now the full organization name will appear as the author in your bibliography.
