# No %.aux file in a particular directory

I have the following line in my report.tex

\include{intro/introduction}
\include{prlm/preliminary}
\include{svy/survey}

and the corresponding directory structure. The directory structure is relative to the directory in which report.tex lies is:

/intro/introduction.tex
/prlm/preliminary.tex
/svy/survey.tex

The first two (introduction and preliminary) were already there and I just added survey.tex file to my report.

Now Latex would repeatedly complain that No file svy/survey.aux.. I know it is not there as latex has not parsed the corresponding tex file. I do not know how to eliminate this.

if you're really annoyed about the latex complaint, you can create (manually) a file survey.aux that contains just one line -- \relax. but i'm not sure that latex won't continue to read that one even after the tex file has been read, since you've specified a different directory. –  barbara beeton Mar 5 '13 at 18:19
"since you've specified a different directory" I did not understand this part. –  Aman Deep Gautam Mar 5 '13 at 18:32
Until you don't process at least once a file declared with \include, the corresponding .aux file will not be produced. Just compile once without \includeonly. However the warning is innocuous. –  egreg Mar 5 '13 at 18:34
@egreg That got it done. I somehow forgot to include it. Please write it as an answer so I can accept it. –  Aman Deep Gautam Mar 5 '13 at 18:45
