  • Welcome to TeX.SE . Did you use \bibdata or \bibstyle command in your file? It's the two errors shown by bibtex Jul 29, 2015 at 9:38

    did you call \bibliographystlye before \bibliograpy?

    Can you please show a minimal .tex manuscript that you are using which creates the error in your post?

    My guess is that your tex file is lacking a \bibliographystyle statement. However, that's just a guess at this point, as you haven't provided the code that gives rise to the problem(s) you're encountering.

  • It is rather curious that the top of the blg says Thesis_Final_ps_11142012a.aux but that the complain is about Thesis.aux. I wonder how you managed to get this output. Jul 29, 2015 at 12:25

The log file given above shows that:

I found no \bibdata command

which means, you have not loaded bib database file in \bibliography{} command.


I found no \bibstyle command

means, you have not given the bibliography style in \bibliographystyle{}.
