### My bibliography is not updating (PDF screen shot attached)

I am writing the thesis for about two months, every day and updating the bibliography regularly. It is strange that bibliography is not updating. Please, find the attached PDF screen shot. The problem is: After [1-3] reference, strangely [18] appears without any [4-17] in between. How to address this. Please, help.

Make sure that you run BibTeX. It should be a TeXstudio option.

You can provide .bib, .blg and .log files here, as attachment.

Regarding numbering: sorting depends on your bibliography style. Which one are you using? If you cite the reference [18] before the others, well, then it comes before. I could say more if I see the files attached.

Thanks for the quick response. I am writing here the code and I am attaching the files that you have been asked. Screen shot of LATEX editor Build commands is also attached.

I see in the .log file this error message:

] (00ManjuThesisMainText.bbl! Undefined control sequence.<argument> ...leftmargin \labelsep \@openbib@code                                                   \usecounter {enumiv}\let \...l.2 \begin{thebibliography}{100} The control sequence at the end of the top lineof your error message was never \def'ed. If you havemisspelled it (e.g., \hobx'), type I' and the correctspelling (e.g., I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,and I'll forget about whatever was undefined. [126

The internal macro \@openbib@code is not supported by your document class. You could at least define it as doing nothing special, in your document preamble:

\makeatletter\let\@openbib@code\relax\makeatother`

Please see the attached document for screen shot. Also, I am adding the log files, bbl for your ready reference. Your code did help to exit the process normally without any errors. Previously it was giving bibliography errors. However,

First chapter, first page text before executing the new code:
..........................technology [1-3].
The solar PV systems ................... reliability [18].

After executing the new code:
..........................technology [1, 16, 17].
The solar PV systems ................... reliability [18].
