I’ve only gone through the process once but I can’t see there being a problem. When you export your documents from Scrivener, it will put them into a single RTF file, where the EndNote code is still raw. As the formatting of the EndNote citations will happen in Word, I don’t envision any formatting problems. Obviously you may have to manually exclude authors or dates or add page numbers or other desired notations where necessary but that shouldn’t affect the style of the citation.
