### Newbie help with order of apperance in Bibtex

I am writting a report in Latex (overleaf) and having trouble sorting my references in order of apperance, can someone help me a bit?

Hi Calypso,

welcome to the forum!

You could use the `sorting=none` option:

`\usepackage[sorting=none, ...]{biblatex}`

Thank you!

When I use \usepackage[sorting=none, ...]{biblatex} in the preamble it shows an error when I compile, the whole document turns red.

\usepackage[sorting=none]{biblatex}

Don't load `biblatex` twice, but add the option to the existing `\usepackage` command:

`\usepackage[backend=bibtex,  bibencoding=utf8,  sorting=none]{biblatex}`

I did not edit the command above in my post but used ... since the code in the question was just a screenshot image, not code text that I could copy and paste and edit.

\usepackage[backend=bibtex,
bibencoding=utf8
sorting=none
]{biblatex}

Yet my references still don't show in order of apperance

Perhaps it's because you forgot the comma in the code of the previous post aftert `bibencoding=utf8` and before `sorting=none` so `biblatex` cannot understand the option.

Oh it works now after compiling 10 times, still the red error code appears every second time I compile, but the other times it works just fine
