i am a passive follower of this forum for quite a time and it usually helped my but now i can't figure a probleme. I want to have a simple bibliography (prefered) in APA but it does not work. I tried almost everything but it displays a error.

\documentclass[12pt,titlepage]{article}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\synctex=1

\usepackage{color}
\usepackage[a4paper,lmargin={3cm},rmargin={2cm},tmargin={2cm},bmargin={2cm}]{geometry}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{amstext}
\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{setspace}
\onehalfspacing

\usepackage{nicefrac}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{nameref}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage[colorlinks=false,pdfborder={0 0 0}]{hyperref}
\begin{document}
test test

test \cite{dohmen2011}


\bibliography{Literatur}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\end{document}

This are the error messages:

Undefined control sequence. test \citet

This is the bib-file:

    You should load the package apacite via \usepackage{apacite} too. – Andrew Swann Jan 22 '16 at 14:46

The error you are getting is because you are trying to use the apacite bibliography style without loading the apacite package. Since you are using natbib citation commands you should load the package with the natbibapa option:

\usepackage[natbibapa]{apacite}

See the following question for more discussion:

The reason your document still failed when you first added the \usepackage command was because the auxiliary files related to the previous latex + bibtex compilation were still around. Whenever you change packages associate to the bibliography (and some other packages) it's always a good idea to delete all the auxiliary files before recompiling.
