Error in .bbl File

Postby swagatopablo » Wed Jul 10, 2013 11:16 am

Using Kile 2.1.0 in Linux Mint 13 and writing a document (named proposal.tex) in standard article format. For the references, I am using a separate bib file using the commands
  1. \bibliographystyle{unsrt}
  2. \bibliography{library}

where library.bib is generated by my reference management software (Mendeley). When I compile the document without the above commands, it gives no error at all. But when I compile with the above commands active, it gives several errors in the proposal.bbl file (which is produced at some stage) and refuses to generate the dvi. I am attaching the log file and the bbl file if they are necessary. Please help.

Correction: I have discovered more specific pattern in the error. It happens specifically when I need to include non-cited items from the bib files in the reference list and use the
  1. \nocite{Key}

command in conjunction with the above commands.

The provided files are quite useless without the corresponding source code (*.tex) and the bibliography database (*.bib). All this information belongs to an adequate problem description by a self-contained and minimal example.
