When I use Bibtex on my file I've a warning:

Warning--edition ordinal word "Second Edition" may be too high (or improper) for conversion in FOO

What can cause this?

MWE:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\begin{document}
\cite{FOO}
\end{document}

.bib:

@book{FOO,
title = "BAR",
author = "John, Smith",
publisher = "some one",
edition = "Second Edition",
address = "Paris",
year = "2015",
}
  • Page 10 of BibTeXing indicates edition should just be "Second" or similar. – Mike Renfro Sep 17 '15 at 13:17
  • @MikeRenfro Problem solved. You could post it as an answer and I'll validate it. – Romain Picot Sep 17 '15 at 13:21

Page 10 of BibTeXing indicates edition should just be "Second" or similar.

edition The edition of a book—for example, “Second”. This should be an ordinal, and should have the first letter capitalized, as shown here; the standard styles convert to lower case when necessary.
