### Issues with formatting bibliography

Hi There

We are compiling our thesis, in that matter we have created a bibliography list which contains several lines.
When we have computed our thesis we have used the cite command.

Now we want to split the list into
- Articles
- Books
- Journals

No matter what we do we cant get this to work properly.

We have used below code:


We have tried adding below codes in various ways, but we cant solce the issue for this..

\printbibliography[title={Whole bibliography}] \printbibliography[type=article,title={Articles}]\printbibliography[type=book,title={Books}]

Can someone assist on this matter??

I have reached next step for this issue containing the split up of bibliography.
%now enable appendix numbering format and include any appendices\printbibliography[heading=bibintoc,title={Litteraturliste}] %Prints the entire bibliography with the titel "Whole bibliography" %Filters bibliography\printbibliography[heading=subbibintoc,type=article,title={Videnskabelige artikler}]\printbibliography[heading=subbibintoc,type=book,title={Bøger}]

Whenever we are using above code, we kind a getting the bibliography mentioned 2 times in our thesis.
- 1st time with a complete list
- 2nd devided into Books and Journals

If we want the bibliography mentioned on the table of contents and we only want the bibliography mentioned once in a seperated form.

- How do we do that?? and what are we doing wrong.

You are showing a lot of code, but nobody can compile it. It is always better to start with a small example, see that everything works and include the part into the bigger document.
Your documentclass is unknown to us, i don't know what is in there. What you need to know, there are diferent ways to generate a bibliography with LaTeX, each incompatible with the other. Please have a look at it.
You are using two different things from different lines.

In general, the modern biblatex is very fine to create a bibliography, your documentclass might be incompatible though. If that is the case, you could consider using a minimal template. As in the linked article, parts of your preamble are also outdated.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
