I'm trying to reference a .bib file but I'm getting this error in Overleaf. Any ideas on what to do? I'm pretty sure I'm using the correct commands.

    Welcome to TeX SE! Have you used any \cite{} commands? – cfr Apr 16 '15 at 21:01

    The error says you have not used \cite if that is the case, you should use \cite to reference the whichever documents you need to reference. – David Carlisle Apr 16 '15 at 21:20

In the log, the line

I found no \citation commands---while reading file main.aux

means that you have not used the \cite{} command in the source text. Try adding at least one.
