I'm trying to export a LyX file to LaTeX format and getting the following warning.

LyX: Export Warning! There are spaces in the paths of your BibTeX databases. BibTeX will be unable to find them.

Any suggestion to handle this warning. Thanks

    The warning is pretty clear: you have a BibTeX (.bib) database file, and it is in a folder which has spaces in the name. LaTeX and BibTeX really do not like spaces in names: do not use them! – Joseph Wright Apr 16 '11 at 7:56
  • @Joseph: After removing the spaces in the files and folders names, I did not have any Export Warning. But we I compiled the Tex file, I got the following warning Warning: Citation 'cite1' on page 1 undefined on input line 3. Citation 'cite1' on page 1 is undefined. Any suggestion. Thanks in advance. – MYaseen208 Apr 16 '11 at 14:02
  • Is the bibliography file correctly identified in the Lyx document? – Charles Stewart Apr 19 '11 at 14:57
