# Biblatex adding fields to IEEE style

I have the following example:

\usepackage[
backend=bibtex,
style=ieee,
bibencoding=ascii
backref=true
hyperref=true
% style=alphabetic
]{biblatex}

\begin{document}

\cite{carl_venture}

\printbibliography

\end{document}


In the bibilography.bib:

@book{carl_venture,
keywords = {call},
author    = "Carl Venture",
title     = "The adventures of Carl Venture.",
publisher = "C.V.",
%volume   = "",
%number   = "",
%series   = "",
edition  = "3",
year      = "1999",
%month    = "",
%note     = "",


I get this:

[#] Carl Venture, The adventures of Carl Venture. C.V.

It is missing the year and edition. How can I enable this fields in the bibliography without changing the IEEE styles?

• I've tried your example and, as is, I couldn't build it. But adding documentclass and removing the commented fields in your bib entry, it worked, including year and edition. See, e.g., tex.stackexchange.com/q/21709/105447 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/261261/105447. – gusbrs Jul 26 '17 at 0:54
• Interestingly enough, this worked. Thank you @gusbrs. So one has to be careful to not have commented lines in .bib. – Focha Jul 26 '17 at 3:17
• @gusbrs if you can, please answer to get the credits. Thank you. – Focha Aug 1 '17 at 1:15
• Focha, I believe moewe meant that as a friendly reminder. You can have a look at our starter guide to understand why he did it, and how the site "rewards" those who participate. But, you can keep the advice for the next time. For this particular question, once you answered it, it would be fine if you accepted your own answer, it's no big deal. – gusbrs Aug 1 '17 at 1:33
• Copy. That you @gusbrs . I'll do it next time. Thank you guys and sorry for the trouble. – Focha Aug 1 '17 at 1:46

• Some people reply in the comments with a suggestion if they can't test their solutions. See also Why do people answer in comments? The question did not provide a full MWE, and the .bib entry misses the closing brace. It is not immediately clear whether that was just a typo or an integral part of the problem. When I was talking about 'credit' above I was not only talking about the idea of attribution I was also thinking about the more 'tangible' credit of up-voting and accepting answers. – moewe Aug 1 '17 at 9:53
