EndNote's export into BibTeX isn't the best -- it doesn't generate a 
default term for a reference, for example, and it generates BibTeX 
incompatible strings on occasion.  I have well over 1K references in my 
EndNote database.  It would be a painful process to generate all of the 
entries into valid BibTeX.  However, EndNote's Refer export is fine, and 
BookEnds can import Refer databases.  It was an easy process to move 
>from EndNote to BookEnds.
