As an example, I created a songbook with 5 songs. The five songs are on separate files included on the main document


The printout is as follows: Page 1: songs 1&2; Page 2: ".tex" printed on a blank page; Page 3: songs 3&4; Page 4: song#5. I get no errors (.tex" marks on a blank page) if a) I merge all files into a single tex file. or b) if I only print the first 4 songs.

The log file shows for song # 5

Underfull \vbox (badness 10000) has occurred while \output is active []

If I switch song#5 with song#3, I get the following: Page 1: songs 1&2; Page 2: song#5; Page 3: ".tex" printed on a blank page; Page 4: song#3. and the log file does not complain about song#5. It indicates "underfull \vbox error" for song # 4, that previously was OK before moving song#5 to be in the position of song#3.

Any hints where to troubleshoot? Error in songs pacage

  • Have you tried to remove the file extension from your input statements? Does the error appear then, too? – epR8GaYuh Jan 31 '17 at 6:58

    All my input statements had the extension ".tex", except for one filename where there was a space before the dot " .tex" By deleting the extra space on the filename the problem now is gone. I was not aware that the input statement does not need the extension in it, so I decided to delete all extension on the input statements on my actual songbook with 100+ songs to make it simpler and more readable. Thanks! – hpcolos Feb 1 '17 at 3:00
