BibTeX Run creates flawed Bibliography

Postby Homeberw on Fri Feb 1st, 2013

Hi all,

I have a document with an associated *.bib file that I have typeset successfully with MiKTeX using the WinEdt front end. On another computer, I decided to try out TeXworks. Using WinEdt, I do "bibtex -> latex -> latex" and all the references come out with no problem. Using TeXworks, when i run BibTeX (no errors) and then PDFLaTeX, I get this error:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                                                        l.24 \end{thebibliography}

So, in trying to figure out the problem, I notice that while BibTeX doesn't give an error with TeXworks, there are no \bibitem entries in the .bbl file. When I copy the .bbl from the WinEdt machine (which does have all the \bibitem entries), then two runs of PDFLaTeX works fine. I am sure I'm doing something stupid, but can anyone give a suggestion?

Thanks!

Problem solved. Updated to use the latest IEEEtran syle and bst files. Everything working now. Hope I didn't waste anyone's time.
