It don't think that was it, and thanks to Brian too for his help and I
am sorry for still not getting it! I think the problem is I don't
actually have the agsm style, as I got this error in the .bgl file
I couldn't open style file agsm.bst
---line 148 of file FlexDraft14.aux
So I tried the style plainnat (with natbib) and also harvard (the .bst I
got of the web) and both seemed to work ok, i.e. I get the references
alphabetical, but in the text references are still refered to
numerically instead of (author, year) which is the citation style I
selected. Please can anyone help?
I'm not sure what OS and LaTeX distro you are using, so I'll try to be
as generic as possible. First, open a shell/command window and run
'kpsewhich agsm.bst'. If it displays a path, then you have style and
something else is wrong, but I'm pretty sure you'll get a null response.
In that case, you need to install the harvard-latex package. With
MiKTeX, use the package manager to install the package named 'harvard'.
The package manager will automatically update the file database. With
TeXLive, install the texlive-bibtex-extra package (using your Linux
distro's package manager, such as Synaptic). I'm pretty sure the
installation script will automatically update the file name database.
All else failing, you can download the harvard-latex package from CTAN
it yourself, then manually update the file database (by running
texhash). Run 'kpsewhich agsm.bst' again just to be sure things went
well, then retry compiling your document.
