Re: Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class book (KOMA-script)

thank you very much for your reply!
what style did you choose for the bibliography itself? (when you right
click on BibTeX Generated Bibliography - Settings... to choose the
bib-file and the citation style from the list)

I ask because, unfortunately, the preamble produced two error messages
for me (see below). but maybe it depends on what corresponding style
you choose? (I did choose natbib in Document - Settings -
Bibliography...)

The error messages:

Undefined control sequence.
 \bibpunct
  {(}{)}{,}{a}{,}{,}
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}.
 \bibpunct{(
}{)}{,}{a}{,}{,}
You're in trouble here.  Try typing  return  to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type  X return  to quit.

- part of my problem apparently was a bad bib-file, which I fixed now.
- I found a good solution for deleting the short titles from my

I am still looking for a way to get rid of the brackets around the
year in my citations. Right now, they look like this: (Talos(2008)),

remove that particular entry from the bib file.

Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class book (KOMA-script)

2009-06-15 Thread Lea Rennert
Hi,

I am writing my thesis in the book (KOMA-script) - class, and need my
citations in author-year style in the text (e.g., xxx (Freud 1928, 15)
xxx), and sorted by author (not numbered) in the bibliography.
I am maintaining my literature-database in citavi, from where I can
export the references into .bib documents.
I am working with Lyx 1.6.2 on windows, and I did not use a
bibtex-editor or anything like that.

In Document  Settings  Bibliography I chose natbib with author-year
style. I inserted the Bibliography through Insert  List/TOC..., where
I uploaded my .bib-file.
When I choose the style plain, creating a pdf works without
problems, but the Bibliography shows up using numbers, both in the
Text - e.g.: [2, 192] - and in the Bibliography, which is not what I
want.

All the other styles I've tried (natbib, plainnat, apacite, ...)
produce various error messages when I create a PDF, and in the PDF the
Bibliography is all garbled up (Authors' names appear several times,
the German Umlaut-Letters like ö/ä/ü are not printed, formatting is
messed up, etc.).

I have been looking for a solution for hours now, and I am just not
sure where my problem lies or what to do next. Should I try changing
the document settings in Lyx (in the Preamble, for example)? Or do I
need a program to edit the bib-file? Which program would be easy to
use on windows? Or could the problem be that my .bib-file is not
configured right?

I hope for someone with more experience it is easier to tell where I
went wrong... :-)
Thank you so much for your help!

Lea

When I choose the style plain, creating a pdf works without
problems, but the Bibliography shows up using numbers, both in the
Text - e.g.: [2, 192] - and in the Bibliography, which is not what I
want.

  
This is almost always due to some sort of error in your bib file. A 
missing year in an entry, for example, will force BibTeX to use 
numerical citations rather than author-year citations.



All the other styles I've tried (natbib, plainnat, apacite, ...)
produce various error messages when I create a PDF, and in the PDF the
Bibliography is all garbled up (Authors' names appear several times,
the German Umlaut-Letters like ö/ä/ü are not printed, formatting is
messed up, etc.).

  
If these are written with umlauts in the bib file, that also could cause 
a problem. It depends very much upon encoding issues and the like.



I have been looking for a solution for hours now, and I am just not
sure where my problem lies or what to do next. Should I try changing
the document settings in Lyx (in the Preamble, for example)? Or do I
need a program to edit the bib-file? Which program would be easy to
use on windows? Or could the problem be that my .bib-file is not

A bib file is just a text file, so you can open it in notepad or 
whatever. But you might want to use something like JabRef, which will 
give you a nice interface to the file.

Re: Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class book (KOMA-script)

2009-06-15 Thread Lea Rennert
Thank you! I fixed my bib-file (it did miss a year!), so that was
certainly good advice. I also downloaded some additional packages
through Miktex and tried out some other citation styles. Some of them
work (such as apalike or plain), but the ones I would need don't.

The citation styles that don't work all give me a lot of error
messages saying Undefined control sequence. and the error
descriptions look something like this (this one came when I used the
style chicago):

 ...r{Aiginger}{Aiginger}{2007}]{Aiginger.2007}

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

I do not know why the name of the author (Aiginger) is repeated so
often, that is not the case in my bib-file. In other error messages,
symbols like % suddenly appear in the text where there are non in the
bibtex file.

Does anybody know what the problem might be?

I tried different encodings when I exported my references from citavi
to bibtex (UTF-8, US-ASCII, Western European (ISO), ...) but nothing
changed. Is there a specific encoding I should use?

Thank you!

Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class book (KOMA-script)

2009-06-15 Thread Lea Rennert
Hi,

I am writing my thesis in the book (KOMA-script) - class, and need my
citations in author-year style in the text (e.g., xxx (Freud 1928, 15)
xxx), and sorted by author (not numbered) in the bibliography.
I am maintaining my literature-database in citavi, from where I can
export the references into .bib documents.
I am working with Lyx 1.6.2 on windows, and I did not use a
bibtex-editor or anything like that.

In Document  Settings  Bibliography I chose natbib with author-year
style. I inserted the Bibliography through Insert  List/TOC..., where
I uploaded my .bib-file.
When I choose the style plain, creating a pdf works without
problems, but the Bibliography shows up using numbers, both in the
Text - e.g.: [2, 192] - and in the Bibliography, which is not what I
want.

I hope for someone with more experience it is easier to tell where I

Thank you so much for your help!
