I get this when I start to compile my bib file. I saved it in the same place as my tex file. I didn't leave any spaces in the title. I think I closed to brackets but It won't even start the command.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Aaah... kk... hern. It does not like something. Did you just fix the { } or did you try the " " like it shows on the bibtex site?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The firs build was basically same as yours, but the bibtex build and the 2 after it show how the compiled bibtex is added into the pdf.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, and they did not have quotes all over. So just the { } may be all you needed. =/ Like I said, never used bibtex before... hehe. But I understand how machines work so I can find errors pretty fast.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Run while the tex file is open. Even the bibtex build should be run while the tex file is open.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Normally it takes {Lastname, First} and reformats it. ``` @article{Sh:1, author = {Shelah, Saharon}, amssubject = {(02.50)}, journal = {Israel Journal of Mathematics}, review = {MR 407102}, pages = {187202}, title = {Stable theories}, volume = {7}, year = {1969}, }, @article{small, author = {Freely, I.P.}, title = {A small paper}, journal = {The journal of small papers}, year = 1997, volume = {1}, note = {to appear}, } ``` You need to format in that way unless you use " " to override it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You put it in quotes like that site said?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1From that web site: ``` BibTeX is great in that it ensures all of the entries are output in the same style. The most noticeable formatting change is the Author field; John Smith becomes Smith, J for example. Useful, unless your author is not a normal name. Let’s say that you’ve got an article written by the Reserve Bank of Australia. If you put this as the author, you’ll get something like Australia, R. B. of. which doesn’t make much sense. Luckily, there’s a way to get the author’s name printed verbatim – by surrounding it in "{...}" For example: @MISC{rba, ... , author = "{Reserve Bank of Australia}", ... } will print out the author correctly. ``` Note where the quotes are.
