Bibliography in alphabetic Order

Postby nicol » Tue Dec 10, 2013 11:37 am

Dear all,

I have a problem. Since some days ago biblatex do not generate a bibliography in an alphabetic order. I used the same preamble I used before, but now it does not work.

What did I do? Where is the problem? This is the preamble I use.
  1. \begin{filecontents}{nicol.bib}
  2. @book{Carroll,
  3. title={Alice Bla Bla},
  4. author={Carroll, Lewis},
  5. year = {1886}
  6. }
  7.  
  8. @book{Gibson,
  9. title={Neuromancer},
  10. author={Gibson, William},
  11. year = {1984}
  12. }
  13. \end{filecontents}
  14.  
  15.  
  16.  
  17. \documentclass{book}
  18.  
  19. \usepackage[german,french,spanish,english]{babel}
  20. \usepackage[babel]{csquotes}
  21.  
  22. \usepackage[backend=bibtex,%
  23. bibstyle=authoryear,citestyle=authoryear]{biblatex}
  24.  
  25. \DeclareBibliographyCategory{books}
  26.  
  27. \defbibheading{books}{\section*{Bibliography}}
  28.  
  29.  
  30.  
  31. \begin{document}
  32.  
  33. ... some text \cite{Gibson}...\cite{Carroll}
  34.  
  35.  
  36. \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\bibname}
  37.  
  38. \printbibliography[heading=books]
  39.  
  40. \end{document}


What I would like to have is a bibliography ordered by an alphabetic order of the authors.


I would like to have this output:

... some text Gibson 1984...Carroll 1886

Bibliography:
Carroll ....
Gibson ....

Unfortunately I get a bibliography ordered following the order of the quotation in the text. The text quoted first is the first text in the bibliography.

This is what I get:

... some text Neuromancer...Alice

Bibliography:
Gibson ...
Caroll ...


Thank you very much for any help.


Best
Nicol

If you want to get concrete answers, you will have to present more than a preamble. Since you are not new to the forum, you should already know this.

It seems like all that is missing to make this an example is to add a \addbibresource line. But I can't reproduce any problem then, so there is probably something else in your actual document that really causes the problem. I think you know what to do to make it possible to help you.
