natbib error

Postby steve de costa » Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:58 pm

I'm trying to use the (Author, Year) style of citation in LateX. The following is what I'm trying to use


Unfortunately I'm getting the attached errors. Can anyone please tell me what should I do to fix this. I've been trying for a few days now.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Well, for a start you've not posted a minimal example. I'm guessing that you've used a natbib .bst file that has not been updated recently. There were some changes in natbib 8 that give errors where before the package simply did stuff without telling you. However, as we don't know which .bst file you are using further help is difficult.

Hi Joseph,

First of all, thank you for your reply.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by minimal example. The only thing I did was that at the start of my document, I also added the natbib package


Then I tried using those commands stated in my post above.

I downloaded all the packages straight from MikeTex's default package manager. Should I just reinstall the natbib file to the latest updated version? Or is there any other suggesstion that you have.

I have also attached the error I am getting in WinEdt. (sorry I had to zip it but the file size was bigger than 256 kb).

Again, thanks for your help.
