I'm begginer in Latex and I get this error when I compile my file

LaTeX Error: There's no line here to end.

following is the code that I used :



     \input{body/pages/remerciements.tex} \newpage
     \input{body/pages/abstract-fr.tex} \newpage
     \input{body/pages/abstract-en.tex} \newpage
     \renewcommand{\contentsname}{Table of Contents} 
     \tableofcontents \newpage
     \listoftables \newpage
     \input{body/pages/titre1/titre1.tex} \newpage
     \input{body/pages/titre2/titre2.tex} \newpage
     \input{body/pages/titre3/titre3.tex}   \newpage
     \input{body/pages/titre4/titre4.tex}   \newpage
     \input{body/pages/titre5/titre5.tex}   \newpage
     \input{body/pages/conclusion.tex} \newpage
     \bibliography{bibliografie}  \newpage

This is the content of "title.tex"




      \begin{tabular*}{1.0\textwidth}{l @{\extracolsep{\fill}} r}

Can someone tell me where is the problem ?

    Welcome, we can not help you with that as you are not showing us anything. Please make your post self-contained. Say, add any information (package...) which is needed in order to compile your document. We can not guess, what \input{title/title.tex} contains and even less, if it does matter here. Try to minimize as much as you can. Most probably, you will find the culprit command by your self. – LaRiFaRi Aug 20 '15 at 12:45
  • Also, see this site to read more about when such errors are raised. – sodd Aug 20 '15 at 12:48
  • I eddited the post, I put the content of "title.tex" – Hakim Aug 20 '15 at 12:55
  • @HakimBenyoucef Thanks. Still far away from minimal, but you got your answer. Off-topic: Please see tex.stackexchange.com/q/41681 – LaRiFaRi Aug 20 '15 at 13:09

The \\ here


is spurious and will always generate this error, simply delete it.

Note also

{\LARGE \bf \@title\\}

should be

{\normalfont\LARGE \bfseries \@title\par}

so that the title is set with a baseline spacing appropriate for the size of the text.

  • \bfseries, maybe? – Bernard Aug 20 '15 at 13:38
  • When I compile title.tex alone I get the following error : ! LaTeX Error: \maketitle undefined – Hakim Aug 20 '15 at 13:42

    @HakimBenyoucef that is expected, the file is designed to change the definitions from their otiginal values. It should be input into the preamble of a document as you show. It is not itself a document – David Carlisle Aug 20 '15 at 14:07
  • @Bernard probably not here. You could use \normalfont\bfseries but \bf comes to the same thing as you know it is an article class document. Headings and titles typically want a fixed font, not pick up the current font as \bfseries does. – David Carlisle Aug 20 '15 at 14:09
  • @David Carlisle: I didn't know that. Thanks, I've learnt something :o) – Bernard Aug 20 '15 at 14:12
