I'm facing following errors. I want to cite a certain report in my paper, but it is not working.

  1. There were undefined references.
  2. Citation 'jeff2000' undefined.

Here's the MWE:

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article} 
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} 
\usepackage{amsmath} 
\usepackage{amsfonts} 
\usepackage{fancyhdr} 
\usepackage{amssymb} 
\usepackage{apacite} 
\bibliographystyle{apacite} 
\begin{document} 
\cite{Jeff2000}
\bibliography{RefEAINew} 
\end{document} 

RefEAINew.bib contains

@report{Jeff2000,
author = {Jeff Borland, and Peter Dawkins, and David Johnson, and Ross Williams},
title = {Returns to Investment in Higher Education},
institution = {University of Melbourne},
year = {2000},
}

  • Don't forget, if your file is called mydoc.tex, to run latex mydoc; bibtex mydoc; latex mydoc; latex mydoc. And to have a \bibliographystyle{...} before the \bibliography{...}. Commented Apr 21, 2014 at 17:56
  • This doesn't solve your problem, but the bib entry you posted has errors that should have gotten error messages about when running bibtex. The format should be NAME and NAME and NAME etc. without commas.

  • Thanks but problem still persist in my PDF format as it shows (?,?) instead of citation.

Removing the erroneous commas between the names of the authors, the document compiles:

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage{apacite} 
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@report{Jeff2000,
author = {Jeff Borland and Peter Dawkins and David Johnson and Ross Williams},
title = {Returns to Investment in Higher Education},
institution = {University of Melbourne},
year = {2000}}
\end{filecontents}
\begin{document} 
\cite{Jeff2000}
\bibliography{\jobname} 
\end{document}
