I am wary of posting this as these extra \else posts seem to be getting closed, but here goes...

I getting the following errors when compiling my .tex file:

enter image description here

Line 243 is not being included in the output PDF and a whole blank page is being inserted above line 243. I have commented out many chunks from the .tex and compiling, in the hope of finding the error, but this has not found the error. So short of posting the entire .tex file, I cannot think of a way of posting a mwe.

One thing I have observed is that if I change the file name of my .tex file and compile, the errors do not occur. If I then run bibtex to add my bibliography to the file, then error does occur. Does this provide any clues?

This is my .aux file:

    Yes, we really do. Please prepare a minimal working example – Johannes_B Jan 20 '14 at 18:33
  • make a copy of the file(s) and strip the copy until the error is gone; undo your last change, and you'll be close to a mwe – cmhughes Jan 20 '14 at 18:35
  • I've now commented out different sections of entire .tex file, plus various parts of .cls and .aux file, but errors remain. I've uploaded .cls and .aux file in hope somebody might be able to see where error is arising. – luciano Jan 22 '14 at 10:21
  • Please note edit regarding when error occurs, therefore, error does not occur the first time after I change file name of .tex file but does occur after the first time I run bibtex. Does this give a clue? – luciano Jan 22 '14 at 10:34
