I am pretty new to LaTeX and much more to bibliographies and I have a problem when loading one.

As I don't pretty know how to do things I tried to follow some steps for building my bibliography.

I used Jabref for bibliography and inserted one entry.

I saved the file as PFC.bib

I am using Texmaker, where I inserted the following lines at the end of the document (before \end(document))

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{PFC.bib}


I opened it in Texmaker, compiled it with F11 (for bibliographies), then compiled also the full document and it doesn't appear.

If I write \cite() the list of cites will appear, so something is loaded. Also there is a blank page with Bibliography written, and if I do CTRL+click there it will bring me to a .bbl file where the following code is written:

\begin{thebibliography}{}
\end{thebibliography}


but nothing inside!

I tried to search where the problem may be but I found nothing! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try to replace \bibliography{PFC.bib} with \bibliography{PFC}. – lockstep Nov 19 '12 at 12:05
nope... I also tried putting the full path, but neither that works – Ander Biguri Nov 19 '12 at 12:08
the “usual” mantra is: process with latex; process with bibtex; process with latex two more times. now, i'm not familiar with texmaker, but your description seems to imply that you have processed the biblio before processing with latex, which will inevitably produce no result. can texmaker not "do the right thing"? -- if not , you need to do the three latex runs “manually” (i.e., by pressing the buttons in order). – wasteofspace Nov 19 '12 at 12:22
@wasteofspace Yes! Actually if I process latex+bibtex+latex+latex in that orther and without nothing else it worked!! Thanks! post your answer as "answer" so I can accept it! – Ander Biguri Nov 19 '12 at 13:45
