Error in .bbl File Topic is solved

LaTeX Forum: BibTeX, biblatex and biber

bibliographiesBibTeXAdd tags Information and discussion about BiBTeX - the bibliography tool for LaTeX documents.

Postby swagatopablo on Wed Jul 10th, 2013

Using Kile 2.1.0 in Linux Mint 13 and writing a document (named proposal.tex) in standard article format. For the references, I am using a separate bib file using the commands
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX

where library.bib is generated by my reference management software (Mendeley). When I compile the document without the above commands, it gives no error at all. But when I compile with the above commands active, it gives several errors in the proposal.bbl file (which is produced at some stage) and refuses to generate the dvi. I am attaching the log file and the bbl file if they are necessary. Please help.

Correction: I have discovered more specific pattern in the error. It happens specifically when I need to include non-cited items from the bib files in the reference list and use the
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX

command in conjunction with the above commands.

The provided files are quite useless without the corresponding source code (*.tex) and the bibliography database (*.bib). All this information belongs to an adequate problem description by a self-contained and minimal example.
