This question already has an answer here:

I have used biber succesfully, but now I have ran into a problem. My pdf files look like this: This citation is not working (eco_theory_1979). When I typeset this tex file:


This citation is not working \parencite{eco_theory_1979}. 

Here is the bib file

    Address = {Bloomington, {IN}},
    Author = {Eco, Umberto},
    Date-Added = {2014-07-28 17:35:21 +0000},
    Date-Modified = {2014-07-28 17:35:21 +0000},
    Isbn = {0253202175, 9780253202178},
    Publisher = {Indiana University Press},
    Title = {A theory of semiotics},
    Year = {1979}}

This is what the log file reports:

No file test.bbl.
LaTeX Warning: Citation 'eco_theory_1979' on page 1 undefined on input line 13.
LaTeX Warning: Empty bibliography on input line 15.
LaTeX Warning: There were undefined references.
Package biblatex Warning: Please (re)run Biber on the file:
(biblatex)                test
(biblatex)                and rerun LaTeX afterwards.

Previously I have compiled similar files without problems. There seem to be a problem that no bbl file is created. I am using TexPad on a Mac and have tried to compile in several ways (autodetect, bibtex...) I will be very happy if anyone can help
