I used the following LaTeX tag to make a chapter

\chapter{title here}

but it did not compile. The LaTeX compiler was talking about

Undefined control sequence

How can I get over this error?

    Not all document classes support chapters (article, in particular). You need to provide a minimal working example of your document for this to be answered any further. Jan 4 '12 at 14:48

    Hi its quite hard to say what´s going on with that little information. Make sure that you use a documentclass which provides \chapter such as report or book

    Please provide a Mimimum Working Example. In your case minimum code that demonstrates the problem and compiles as it should when the offending \chapter{...} is commented out.

    @MikeRenfro As you commented first, please turn your comment into an answer. Otherwise, we'll probably close the question.

Not all document classes support chapters -- in particular, the article standard class does not, while book and report do. You need to provide a minimal working example of your document for this to be answered any further.
