All of my citations are undefined in a ShareLaTeX document. A minimal working example:

\documentclass[a4paper]{report}

\usepackage[british]{babel}
\usepackage{natbib}

\bibliographystyle{natbib}
\begin{document}

\section{Some section}
    \citet{LAS13}
    \citet{LCN09}


\bibliography{bib}

\end{document}

And bib.bib contains this:

    @Article{LCN09,
      Title                    = {Title},
      Author                   = {Author1 and Author2},
      Journal                  = {Journal},
      Year                     = {2009},

      Owner                    = {Owner},
      Timestamp                = {2015.06.01}
    }

@Article{LAS13,
  Title                    = {Title2},
  Author                   = {Author and Author and Author},
  Year                     = {2013},

  Owner                    = {Owner},
  Timestamp                = {2015.05.18}
}

I've tried clearing the cache-files, compiling twice in LaTeX first, but I don't know why it's still not working.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

    The instruction \bibliographystyle{natbib} is almost certainly an error. natbib is a citation management package that comes with several bibliography styles (e.g., plainnat and unsrtnat), but it shouldn't occur in the argument of \bibliographystyle. – Mico Jun 1 '15 at 15:30
  • @Mico Should we consider this as a typo, hence closing as off-topic? – Johannes_B Jun 1 '15 at 16:30
  • @Johannes_B - Well, now that Werner has posted an answer, in which unsrtnat is mentioned as a possible bibliography style, it's probably better not to close the posting. – Mico Jun 1 '15 at 17:10
  • @Mico Agreed. :-) – Johannes_B Jun 1 '15 at 17:26
  • I wish I could accept your comment answer Mico, but I'll accept the one I got so others might benefit. – lennyklb Jun 1 '15 at 18:25

You should choose one of the available bibliography citation styles; natbib is not such a style:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{natbib}

\begin{document}

\section{Some section}
\citet{LAS13}
\citet{LCN09}

\bibliographystyle{unsrtnat}
\bibliography{main}

\end{document}

Here is a basic natbib template in ShareLaTeX that you can follow.
