Undefined reference in Citing refworks refrences

Postby netman » Thu Feb 06, 2014 8:33 pm

Hi

I am very new to latex and it is the first document I am creating with latex.
I am trying to cite the references I have from my refworks account.
  1. I exported my references in .bib file -> references.bib
  2. I added the following in my .tex file:

    1. \begin{document}
    2.  
    3. my text .... \cite{RefWorks:62}
    4.  
    5. \bibliographystyle{alpha}
    6. \bibliography{references}
    7.  
    8. \end{document}

  3. here is what I have in references.bib:

    1. @book{RefWorks:62,
    2. author={A.M. Feldman},
    3. year={1980},
    4. title={Welfare Economics and Social Choice Theory},
    5. publisher={Kluwer Academic},
    6. address={Boston}
    7. }

After compiling the file, I receive:
  1. Citation `RefWorks:62' on page 1 undefined


and there is [?] in my generated pdf

I followed the instruction I found about referencing refworks in Latex but i am not sure why references don't show up.

I will appreciate if you can help me.

Thanks

Reason: added code markup

You need to run/call bibtex on you main file (without extension). There will definitely be a button in your editor, but it is unknown to us.

Question mark instead of citation number
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

please forgive me if i did not understand you correctly.
I am using texmaker and after editing my file, i use the menu bar to build (tools/quick build) the file.
i assumed when i build the file, it will run the bib file as well.
is there any other step i should take in texmaker to run the bib file?

Go to tools and run BibTeX or press the F11 button on your keyboard.
