Delete Bibliography In Word 2010

Before you can add a citation, a works cited list, or a bibliography, you must add a source to your document. A works cited list is a list of sources, usually placed at the end of a document, that you referred to (or "cited") in the document. A works cited list is different from a bibliography, which is a list of sources that you consulted when you created the document. After you add sources, you can automatically generate a works cited list or a bibliography based on that source information. Each time that you create a new source, the source information is saved on your computer. You can use the Source Manager to find and reuse any source that you have created, even sources in other documents.

Citations are parenthetical references that are placed inline with the text. Citations are different from footnotes and endnotes, which are placed at the bottom of the page or end of the document. The source information stored in the Citations tool or Source Manager can be used to create citations, a works cited list, or a bibliography. However, you cannot use the information in the Citations tool or the Source Manager to create footnotes or endnotes.

I'm trying to insert a bibliography for a research paper in Microsoft Word 2010. I'm using manage sources in the references toolbox to insert my sources. Word is formatting my sources the way I want them but, when I insert the bibliography it is always in alphabetic order.

I want to insert the bibliography so that the papers are in the order I cite them in the paper for example,

A sentence in my paper could end like this,

as can be seen in [1] and [2] among others.

I would then like the Bibliography to look like this,


[1] Morris, J., and S. Johnson. "Discrete Element Modeling." Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering (American Society of Civil Engineers), 2007.

[2] Kruggel-Emden, H., M. Sturm, Wirtz S., and Scherer V. "Selection of an appropriate time integration scheme for the discrete element method(DEM)." Computers and Chemical Engineering 32 (2008): 2263-2279.

However, I can't get the bibliography to stop inserting the references in alphabetic order. I know how to get the brackets and the numbers outside the references as shown above but, I don't know how to get the references in non-alphabetic order.

I have tried assigning numerical tags to each of the references in the manages sources section but, that did not work. Does anyone have any idea how to do this? I do not want to write out all the sources myself or sort the sources at the end with the function in the table menu.
