Can you please post a minimal working example that shows the bib input and reproduces the error you're getting?

when i write for example, in my .bib (with jabref), in author section :
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) H\¨o luy
2) T\ae r
the result is :
---------------
1) Hluy
2) Tr
If i put rather this :
---------------------
3) H\¨oluy

the result is one error during compilation of .tex :
"undefined control or sequence"

Kindly follow the link that Clemens has given in his reply to give an adequate problem description. Otherwise this thread ends up in guesswork.

It seems that you have a problem with input encoding. But details can only be spotted if we have a concrete example.
