### References do not appear

Hi to all,

I have problems with two references I will explain first then introduce them.

1. I have a reference of a guy called "DeMello" and in both reference page and in the main text it shows me "Mello". I check my bib file and everything is written well.

2. I have a reference that never appear and of course everything is written well.
These are the two database entries:
@article{Terzaghi,   Author = {K Terzaghi and R B Peck and G Mesri},   Date-Added = {2013-09-12 23:17:10 +0000},   Date-Modified = {2013-10-21 07:24:49 +0000},   Title = {Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice},   Volume = {3rd edition, Wiley, New York},   Year = {1996}} @article{DeMello,   Author = {V F B DeMello},   Date-Modified = {2013-10-16 13:35:07 +0000},   Journal = {6th Regional Conference for Africa on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Durban, South Africa},   Pages = {pp. 285-304},   Title = {Some lessons from unsuspected, real and fictious problems in earth dam engineering in Brazil},   Year = {1975}}

I am running TeXworks on Mac OS X.

Reason: Longer passages of source code are tagged as code block, not as in-line code.

Can you produce an example that reproduces this problem? We need to know things like document class, bibliography style, citation commands used, that sort of thing.

Hi

\documentclass{LMTreport}\usepackage [frenchb]{babel}\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}\graphicspath{{figures/}}\usepackage{rotating}\usepackage{lscape}\usepackage{float}\usepackage{multirow}\bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}

I'm writing my PhD

and citation command is
\cite{DeMello}\cite{Terzaghi}

i have around 100 difference references all work fine except these 2

Alsways asking for minimal working examples makes me really tired.

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}     @article{Terzaghi,       Author = {K Terzaghi and R B Peck and G Mesri},       Date-Added = {2013-09-12 23:17:10 +0000},       Date-Modified = {2013-10-21 07:24:49 +0000},       Title = {Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice},       Volume = {3rd edition, Wiley, New York},       Year = {1996}     }      @article{DeMello,       Author = {V F B DeMello},       Date-Modified = {2013-10-16 13:35:07 +0000},       Journal = {6th Regional Conference for Africa on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Durban, South Africa},       Pages = {pp. 285-304},       Title = {Some lessons from unsuspected, real and fictious problems in earth dam engineering in Brazil},       Year = {1975}     }\end{filecontents}\documentclass{article}%\documentclass{LMTreport}% I don't have this class\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}% A warning told me to use this encoding. % Definitely a good idea for languages% with diacritics\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}\begin{document}I am a minimal example \cite{DeMello}\nocite{*}\bibliography{\jobname}\end{document}

This gives me the bibliography with both references. Click on Open in writelatex directly above the code to verify it.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I concur....

I can't reproduce this either. You didn't provide the document class, so I can't be certain what's happening there. Try to get it working with NO additional packages if you can. The instructions for a minimal working example are common enough that there's a special "MWE" button on this site (which should tell you something).

I am sorry
I am a complete beginner in LaTeX and still learning day by day
The document class is my university style report, we are not obliged to use it but it was ready i just had to fill.

About my problem it Works fine now
Thank you very much to all.
