Hi all,

thank you very much for your quick and useful responses.

1. To cut the file in two did not make a difference.
2. I found a 'dodgy' reference in my list at "Wa..." (alphabetical order).
After that was removed, everything worked fine:).

@ Richard: Great hints. It must have been an illegal character, which I
could not immediately identify when looking at that reference and it was not
the first one that didn't appear. I will next time rather launch LyX from a
terminal and I will try ASCII encoding, but have to see how I go with my
special characters. Thank you for the kind offer of help.

@ Uwe: I thank you very much for your relevant comment; and you are right.
My list has resulted from the merger of a five year, multi-disciplinary
project. So, yes, I won't need all of them and should have 'cleaned out
earlier' for the sake of overview at least. And I do my best not to torture
the reviewer with inadequate referencing, though I might have been quite

@ Rainer: I would love to know that, too, how to identify non-ASCII
characters in a bibtex file.

Delighted that things have progressed thanks to you all and I learned s.th.
