I have the package
  1. \usepackage{url}
in my main document, but thought that the BiBTeX document doesn't actually need anything. How do I check the BiBTeX file for errors because I can save it as a BiBTeX file with no problem. There is no .blg file for me though.

It was a LaTeX error, BibTeX did not complain. Perhaps show the corresponding code or a minimal example again, respectively. And the full error message.

I get a bibliography with 13 entries though.
If it doesn't work for you, you are doing something different or you this example is not representative. In any case, because this works (except those errors and warnings, which you could fix), I cannot do anything whithout knowing what steps you made and Log files (.log, .blg).

Thanks for all the help. I renamed the file and it suddenly worked. In some of my references, some of the words are not capitalised even though they are in BibTeX. Is there any way I can fix this?
