# Biblatex & Biber still dysfunctional - need some help (is there something wrong in code)? [closed]

I still have issues with biblatex and biber, citations are not produced properly, a reference list is not set up. I also run pdflatex, biber, pdflatex (F6-F11-F6) in TeXStudios.

I implemented the code suggested here Citation and reference list isn't working, but it's still not working.

Could you have a look on my code, maybe you find the problem?

    \documentclass[12pt,ngerman]{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=apa]{biblatex}%mod.
\usepackage[german=quotes]{csquotes}%mod.
\usepackage[locale=US]{siunitx}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{ngerman}{ngerman-apa}

\begin{document}

\section{Test}
This is a test \cite{Test2000}.
\printbibliography
\end{document}


In Literatur.bib, I have properly implemented the Test2000 cite:

    @Article{Test2000,
Title                    = {This is a testing title},
Author                   = {Test, V.},
Journal                  = {Example magazine},
Year                     = {2000},
Pages                    = {33-37},
Volume                   = {8}
}


Errors: Zeile 147: Citation 'Test2000' on page 6 undefined Zeile 182: Empty bibliography: There were undefined references. Please (re)run Biber on the file:(biblatex) AbschlussberichtX(biblatex) and rerun LaTeX afterwards

Please edit your question to be a "minimal working example" that is, remove all packages unrelated to the problem, while making sure the posted code demonstrates the problem, and say exactly what doesn't work, if you get an error paste the exact error message. –  David Carlisle May 11 '14 at 9:47
Ok, i changed it to give others the opportunity to learn from my case. Best wishes. –  Jens May 11 '14 at 10:12

You need the \printbibliography at the end

Eg, minus the preamble

\begin{document}

\section{Test}
This is a test \cite{Test2000}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}

You are right, I just forget it to add in my code here,.. added it now - in whole document, it was already included. Still not working. –  Jens May 11 '14 at 9:41
Works fine here. Maybe you should post your error log file. See edit above. Just try to compile couple more times. –  Trefex May 11 '14 at 9:45

Make sure you actually run biber and not bibtex –  Trefex May 11 '14 at 9:48

Before it was set to biber, my standard bibliography was set for bibtex. After I changed it to biber, it worked properly.
