I have a nice detailed bib file, but the output shows more less, than I want.

  title={{Konstruktionselemente des Maschinenbaus~2: Grundlagen von Maschinenelementen f{\"u}r Antriebsaufgaben}},
  author={\textsc{Steinhilper}, Waldemar and \textsc{Sauer}, Bernd},
  series={6. Auflage},

What should I do, to write out all informations from the bib file? How can I controll what should be visible?

This is down to your bibliography style - which one do you use? – Joseph Wright Mar 16 '11 at 12:26
Your bib-file is corrupt -- the comma after the publisher field is missing which means that everything afterwards will be gobbled. – lockstep Mar 16 '11 at 12:53

Here's how to do it using biblatex and its \footfullcite macro. I added the missing comma in your .bib file and also removed some formatting macros.




% last name of authors in small caps


  title={Konstruktionselemente des Maschinenbaus~2: Grundlagen von Maschinenelementen für Antriebsaufgaben},
  author={Steinhilper, Waldemar and Sauer, Bernd},



Some text.\footfullcite{konstruktionselemente}



EDIT: While I still recommend biblatex, simply adding the missing comma in your .bib file may be the right answer for you.
