How to use a reference to cite a dissertation in APA 6th Edition

Hello,

I'm using MS Word 2007's References tools. I want to create a bibliographic entry for a dissertation, but this is not one of the choices.

What is the best input method for a dissertation?

Thank you.
This should help create a bibliography:
If this is not what you are looking for, you could bing it and see if you find any reference.

No. This does not answer my question. I know how to access REFERENCES and use it to cite books, journals, etc.

My question is how to create an entry for a Dissertation. I have tried Miscellaneous, but this does not provide a bibliographic entry in APA 6th Edition format. (A bibliographic entry prints, but it is not correct even though APA 6th Edition is selected.).

Okay, but what fields do you enter to make it come up correctly for the APA 6th Edition style?

OK. I figured it out. To get it to look like this (Purdue's Online Writing Lab example), do this:

Select: Report
Fill in...

Title of the dissertation here: A view from the participants' seats: A discussion of executive team coaching
Year: 2014
Report type: (Doctoral dissertation)  || Type it just like this <==
URL: Proquest database UMI number 3543873

Voila! A work around.

Best,
Lalita

Hopefully, Microsoft will add in this entry type.  The above work-around does not fully comply with APA formatting.  It comes close, though.  Kudos to Lalita for posting an option.

Making bibliographic data was difficult for me. Try this: http://degreeway.com/blog/review-of-literature-in-your-dissertation. Maybe you'll find some sensible thoughts there.
