I'm using multibib with WinEdt. If my main .tex file has:

\newcites{acks}{Acknowledgement page references}

then the pdflatexify process results in all the necessary output files. Also, when I press the B button, BibTeX gets called both for my main bibliography and for the acks bibliography. However, if I relegate these lines to a style file, outside the main .tex file, then WinEdt fails to create the relevant .aux file, and does not attempt to BibTeX the .bib file (which is in a subdirectory, by the way).

Is there any way to get around this?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The following is my personal opinion: WinEdt is a commercial editor so such questions should be asked at the support site of WinEdt. winedt.com/support.html -- So I voted for closing "too localised". – Marco Daniel Apr 14 '12 at 10:15
I suspect we could do with a MWE here. I'm not sure what you mean by 'WinEdt fails to create ...' as this is done by pdfLaTeX, which is being run. – Joseph Wright Apr 15 '12 at 10:47
I've worked around this since asking the question and can't spare the time now to explore it, sorry... if you must, you can close it I suppose. – einpoklum Apr 15 '12 at 11:44
