### How to use multibib...?

Could anyone please describe to me how to use multibib. I have read the documentation, however it leaves me with some unanswered questions.
The additional bibliography does not show - I get the warnings:

Package natbib Warning: Citation 'reference' on page xx undefined

I am using documentclass{report}

Build a minimal working example (MWE) that shows your recent efforts. Nevertheless the multibib manual clearly shows what to do (Section 2 - Example, p. 4). It couldn't be explained any better by someone else. Translate this to your document.

I have made this as compact as possible. You should be able to see what I am doing wrong - have tried one more time to follow the example, but get the same warning and no additional bibliography.
Main file:
\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,twoside,openright,english,fleqn]{report}\usepackage[numbers]{natbib}\usepackage{multibib}\newcites{dk}{Litteratur} \begin{document}\part{First part with bib.}\chapter{Header I}Some random text for part I. According to \citedk{1}\bibliographystyledk{plain}\bibliographydk{litteratur} \part{Second part with bib.}\chapter{Header II}Some random text for part II. \cite{Galbraith}\renewcommand{\refname}{Bibliography}\bibliographystyle{plain}\bibliography{litteratur}\end{document}

litteratur.bib :
@article{1,	author={A. Haufe and D. Lorenz and K. Roll and P. Bogon},	year={2008},	title={Concepts to take elastic {Tool} {Deformations} in {Sheet} {Metal} {Forming} into account},   journal = {10$^{th}$ International LS-DYNA$^{\text{\textregistered}}$\ Users Conference},	pages={19--26},	note = {Metal Forming(1)},}@Manual{Galbraith,   author="Chris Galbraith",   title ="{Sheet Metal Forming Simulation Using {LS-DYNA}}",   organization ="\\Metal Forming Analysis Corporation",   year ="2001",   note ="Course notes",}

Hi,

in a .bib file you cannot use math mode commands (such as "\$" and "^"). Change your bib database to

@article{1,    author={A. Haufe and D. Lorenz and K. Roll and P. Bogon},    year={2008},    title={Concepts to take elastic {Tool} {Deformations} in {Sheet} {Metal} {Forming} into account},   journal = {10\textsuperscript{th} International LS-DYNA\textsuperscript{\textregistered}\ Users Conference},    pages={19--26},    note = {Metal Forming(1)}}@Manual{Galbraith,   author="Chris Galbraith",   title ="{Sheet Metal Forming Simulation Using {LS-DYNA}}",   organization ="\\Metal Forming Analysis Corporation",   year ="2001",   note ="Course notes"}

Delete all the .bbl auxiliar files previously generated and compile your document again as indicated in the multibib manual.

Thx, but that did not help using multibib (and normally that seems to work fine for me) - so that seems not to be the problem.

Well, it works OK in my system; I attach the pdf I obtained after compilation of your example code with the modifications I suggested for the bib database.

Please, process your code (I'll refer to it as test.tex) in the standard way, using the .bib database modified as I suggested:

(pdf)latex testbibtex testbibtex dk(pdf)latex test(pdf)latex test

and post here, as an attachment, the .log file obtained.

I got it to work (nice on a monday morning), however I needed to split the bib-database into two files and compile them seperately. The example in the multibib documentation shows that the same bib-database (lit.bib) is used - would be convenient If they could stay in the same file.
Are u using a two-file bib-database or just one like in the documentation?
Furthermore, I have defined TWO new bibs (in the example only one extra is defined), eventhough I only need one extra - otherwise I could not compile the bib-file.

My previous reply was crystal clear. I only used one bibliographical database.

well... that for sure does not work for me. Two bib-databases is apparently my solution.

Please post here a MWE showing clearly that (after my suggestions) your problem persists.
