Database, List, References

Postby srosendal » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:52 pm

Hi

I would like to create a list with 50 items or so. Each item needs 3 names, for example with

Reference: Number: Item: Description
tag01: 091102S61S01: Push Button: Start sequence
tag02: 091102S61S02: Push Button: Stop sequence
tag03: 091102S61S03: Button Switch: Mode Selector

I want to make references to these, say my text will be:

When operator push /tag01 the machine starts
When operator push /tag02 the machine stops

Actual text should be
When operator push 091102S61S01: Push Button: Start sequence the machine starts
When operator push 091102S61S02: Push Button: Stop sequence the machine stops

I tried with BibTex, but it was not good, too difficult to get the actual text right

Anyone wanna try ? THX

Welcome to the forum!

Perhaps show what you tried. Besides BibTeX, you could use biblatex.

Thank you

What I get is:

When operator push 'start sequence' (1s01) the machine starts
When operator push 'stop sequence' (1s02) the machine stops


I want a form like year:title:author

---------------------------------------------------------------------
MY MAIN

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}

\title{test}
\author{test}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
When operator push \citet{tag01} the machine starts\\
When operator push \citet{tag02} the machine stops

\newpage
\bibliographystyle{apalike}
\bibliography{bibliography.bib}

\end{document}

---------------------------------------------------------------------
MY BIBLIOTGAPHY.bib

@book{tag01,
title={push button},
author={'start sequence'},
volume={},
year={091102s61s01},
publisher={}
}
@book{tag02,
title={push button},
author={'stop sequence'},
volume={},
year={091102s61s02},
publisher={}
}

At least I did not use such a method. I can help in troubleshooting stuff, no time for engineering new things.

If you find out something, let us please know. I'm interested.
