I've got a strange problem, where texmaker throws an error only if I include the following citation:

however natural mood swings during weekdays might also have an
influence\footnote{see the appendix for "a case of the Mondays" at 
Google in Figure \ref{googmondays}}. As \citeA[p. 4]{yuliandresnerzhu} 
have pointed out especially Mondays can have a significant impact on employees mood.

If I remove \citeA it works ... Other \citeA citation work perfectly fine.

Here's the corresponding bibtex entry:

@INPROCEEDINGS{yuliandresnerzhu,
  author = {Yuliang Oliver Yao and Martin Dresner and Kevin Zhu},
 title = {Searching for the 'Monday Blues' in Order Fulfillment and its   Cure},
 year = {2010},
 owner = {johnny},
 timestamp = {2011.05.11},
url = {http://ssrn.com/abstract=1535117}
}

EDIT:

Here's the my custom build command:

  latex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|bibtex %.aux|latex -interaction=nonstopmode
      %.tex|bibtex %.aux|dvipdfm %.dvi|evince %.pdf

A working example should be:

 \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
 \usepackage{apacite} 
 \bibliographystyle{apacite} 
 \begin{document}

 \section{Design Decisions, why?}   

\subsection{Mood representation}
however natural mood swings during weekdays might also have an
influence\footnote{see the appendix for "a case of the Mondays" at Google in Figure}.
As  \citeA[p. 4]{yuliandresnerzhu} have pointed out especially Mondays can have a
significant impact on employees mood.



\bibliography{JF_MISNAAIFSMP_Biblio}             

  \end{document}         

The are a lot of warnings thrown but strangely no error. What bugs me the most is that it actually stopped working after I inserted the citation, without changing anything else.

Can you please add a minimal working example? –  Thorsten May 11 '11 at 16:05

It would be good if you would also tell us the error message. –  Stefan Kottwitz May 11 '11 at 16:07

Your bib record is missing an obligatory field for this reference type: you need a booktitle field. You also have no publisher or address fields, but these will just cause warnings, not errors. –  Alan Munn May 11 '11 at 16:18
    
thanks changing the reference type worked... At first I figured as well that this would only throw a warning, but still it somehow stopped latex. –  jcfrei May 11 '11 at 16:57

Your bib record is missing an obligatory field for this reference type: you need a booktitle field. Obligatory fields that are missing from a record will cause bibtex to throw an error; this will generally stop your build process.

You also have no publisher or address fields, but these will just cause warnings, not errors.
