# Latex cannot find reference in my LaTeX file - no .bbl created [duplicate]

I have the following article file:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{cite}

\begin{document}

\title{My Article}
\author{Nobody Jr.}
\date{Today}
\maketitle

Blablabla said Nobody ~\cite{Nobody06}.

\bibliography{mybib}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\end{document}


In the same folder there is a mybib.bib file that contains the following code:

@misc{Nobody06,
author = "Nobody Jr",
title = "My Article",
year = "2006" }


When I compile using Texmaker, I get the following warning:

Citation 'Nobody06' on page 1 undefined


and a [?] is at the citation place.

I have been compiling the main file with latex, bibtex, latex, latex as suggested in Question mark or bold citation key instead of citation number . And no .bbl file is created.

The .blg file looks like the following:

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (TeX Live 2015/Debian)

Any idea what I'm missing?

• It works fine for me, i used pdflatex , bibtex, pdflatex, pdflatex. Jul 29 '17 at 8:27
• Thanks it worked for me using pdflatex. seems to be a Texmaker problem. Jul 29 '17 at 8:33
• @PeterMølgaardPallesen it should work with latex bibtex latex latex sequence as well and it worked for me only thing the ouput is DVI file instead of pdf. check in texmaker options if you have latex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex and bibtex %.aux in latex and bibtex locations. one can even automate the compilation using latexmk Jul 29 '17 at 8:39
• Is the name of your tex-file "Appendix1.tex"? Jul 29 '17 at 8:59
• My guess would be (based on the "appendix1.aux" in the blg) that you had set the master file to the wrong file and so texmaker tried to compile something else. Jul 29 '17 at 12:03
