I am trying to create a table with the information that is in my BibTeX file (like year of publication, description, etc) but I don't know how to do it. For example, let say this is my BibTeX file:

  author = {t1},
  title  = {t2},
  year   = {t3}

And I want my LaTeX output to show a table that contains author, title, and year

Does anyone knows how to do it?

  • Just to be clear, you don't want the full bibliography, just the author, title and year of each entry in the .bib file?

  • No, I want more information. The author, title, and year was just an example. I might want to show the description or the keywords that are on the bibtext

    Forget BibTeX. Use Biblatex and Biber. If you are able to, that is.

  • It seems like you want to decide on a per-entry which information shoud be included and which shouuld be omitted. If there is some sort of scheme, i.e. all books shall not print a publisher (for whatever reason) and all online entries shall omit the url, this would be programmable (with quite some effort).

    If there is no scheme, using an automation tool is very pointless.
