  • It doesn't work! I'm using \input{C:/Users/Myname/Desktop/TESA_economics/SES/pluto.tex} The error is: !Missing $ inserted. <inserted tex> $ \input{C:/Users/Myname/Desktop/TESA_economics/SES/pluto.tex} Have you some idea? – Marc Nov 4 '17 at 15:40
  • Your problem is the space in your user name and also try to avoid special characters such as _ in your file or folder names. Try with a relative path. For example if your main file is in the folder TESA_economics: \input{./SES/pluto.tex} – user36296 Nov 4 '17 at 15:44
  • @samcarter underscores in file names are not special and not a problem. – Ulrike Fischer Nov 4 '17 at 15:52
