I have a problem with my bibliography. I'm using this code:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{natbib} 

\bibpunct{(}{)}{;}{a}{,}{,}

\begin{document}

some text here \citep[see][]{ODIG}

\bibliographystyle{chicago}
\bibliography{biblio}

\end{document}

I have done my bibliography in a different document and compiled it with BibTeX, but it doesn't work. In fact when I compile (two times) the result is:

(see:?)

references (nothing)

I used

@ARTICLE {ODIG, title={Oligarchy, democracy, inequality and growth}, author={Bouguignon,Francois and Verdier, Thierry}, journal={Journal of Development Economics}, volume={62}, issue={}, pages={285--313}, year={2000}, }

There is no error in .blg, there are that warnings

Paper.tex 66 Package natbib Warning: Citation ODIG' on page 2 undefined on input line 66.

Paper.bbl 3 Package natbib Warning: Empty thebibliography' environment on input line 3.

Paper.tex Package natbib Warning: There were undefined citations.

How can I resolve the problem?

    Welcome, this is a common problem. Please read Question mark instead of citation number – Johannes_B Apr 27 '16 at 7:56

    Please post the contents of the ODIG entry in the file biblio.bib. Please also advise if there's an error or warning message in the .blg ("BibTeX log") file. – Mico Apr 27 '16 at 8:17

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem was caused by an incorrect filename extension ("tex" instead of "bib") for the bibliography file. – Mico Apr 27 '16 at 13:23
