Jabref saves -> .bib but Lyx loads -> .bst?

Postby dead_mantra » Mon Nov 12, 2018 3:10 pm

Hello guys,

I have migrated to to Lyx 2.3 on a different computer than the one I originally wrote my document on.
I had a .bib file generated with Jabref and I simply copied this file over to the new computer.
However, during compilation Lyx is trying to read the .bib from the old path (on the previous computer).
Now, after clicking on the 'BibTex Generated Bibliography' at the end of my document I'm only presented with the option to load .bst files.
Is there a way to load .bib then? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

The .bst file is the style file (i.e., how to format the entries you cite). The .bib file is the entries you are citing.
