### Generate one .bbl File from multiple .bib Files

Hi, all

I want to generate one .bbl file from multiple .bib reference files in order to keep the .tex file looks tidy. My way is looks like this:
`\bibliography{reference/ref1,reference/ref2}`

Reference file ref1.bib and ref2.bib are reference files contained in the directory reference. The compiler I used is dvipdfmx:

However, it produces the error message:
`C:\main.bbl! Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.\par ...m \@noitemerr {\@@par }\fi \else {\@@par }                                                   \fi`

So does anyone could help me how to solve this problem or help me implement it.

Thanks.

The error is likely to be somewhere else. Please post a minimal example of both your LaTeX and BibTeX sources.
