I'm using natbib and can't get it to run. Is there something obvious I'm missing?

\bibliographystyle{plainnat}

\begin{document}

\citep{Test}

\bibliography{main-tex}

\end{document}

blg-file output:

I couldn't open database file main-tex.bib
---line 45 of file main-tex.aux
 : \bibdata{main-tex
 :                  }
I'm skipping whatever remains of this command
I found no database files---while reading file main-tex.aux
Warning--I didn't find a database entry for "Test"
(There were 2 error messages)

Why can't he create the bib file?

    You need a \usepackage{natbib}... – Andrew Swann Jan 14 '14 at 12:26
  • Sorry, thought this was obvious. But maybe it's indeed a package-problem. I'm going to edit in my packages. – Rhodarus Jan 14 '14 at 12:31
  • You should reduce your code to a minimum that produces the problem. The error message is that it can't find the file main-tex.bib. Do you have such a file? It should contain your bibtex entries. – Andrew Swann Jan 14 '14 at 12:54
  • I think I reduced it, I don't know whether other packages could produce that problem. And as I wrote, I don't have a bib-file and I don't know why. – Rhodarus Jan 14 '14 at 13:41
  • I thought I could \citet{attributes} and he automatically creates the bib-file and entry. Do I have to fill the bib-file manually for every citation? – Rhodarus Jan 14 '14 at 13:53
