This question already has an answer here:

Here is the content of the Bibtex that I want to use as bibliography for LATEX file (paper):

      title={A fourier spectrum-based approach to represent decision trees for mining data streams in mobile environments},
      author={Kargupta, Hillol and Park, Byung-Hoon},
      journal={Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on},

  title={A privacy-preserving technique for Euclidean distance-based mining algorithms using Fourier-related transforms},
  author={Mukherjee, Shibnath and Chen, Zhiyuan and Gangopadhyay, Aryya},
  journal={The VLDB Journal—The International Journal on Very Large Data Bases},
  publisher={Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.}

I would to save the file with name BIB1. However, I have option to save it in TexStudio as txt file or as a TEXfile (list of extensions includes *.tex, *.bib). How to save it? and afterwards should I compile it or use the command Bibtex?

Save it with .bib and compile with latex-bibtex-latex-latex and then take a look at the pdf.

Take a look also to the other quesetion. If you need help take a look at these gifs I just made.

  • When I save it (the file name is try17) I get the following error message:Process started: bibtex.exe "try17" I couldn't open file name `try17.aux' Process exited normally – Avi Jan 19 '16 at 22:31
  • Hmm... have you tried creating the .bib file with a normal text editor, like notepad++? – Mauricio Fernández Jan 19 '16 at 22:35
  • Yes, But there is no option to save it as .bib. – Avi Jan 19 '16 at 22:36
  • You can just save it and afterwards change the file kind. – Mauricio Fernández Jan 19 '16 at 22:37
  • I tried the regular notepad and created a new file with the .bib extension. The file type now is BibTex Database I hope this is OK? – Avi Jan 19 '16 at 22:39
