# Label of bibliography

I have a problem with my bibliography. I use as Editor TexStudio.

When I write my book reference in this format:

    @book{1,
author = {Davide Gould},
title = {Complete Maya Programming: An Extensive Guide to MEL and C++ API},
isbn = {1558608354},
publisher = {Morgan Kaufmann},
Year = {2003}
}


In the pdf it appears like this:

While I'd want the number 1 as label, not the "Gou03".

What is the problem?

Try:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@book{Gould,
author = {Davide Gould},
title = {Complete Maya Programming: An Extensive Guide to MEL and C++ API},
isbn = {1558608354},
publisher = {Morgan Kaufmann},
Year = {2003},
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
\nocite{*}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\end{document}


The label in the bib file has nothing to do with what is printed, whuch is decided by the bibliographic style used.

• It doesn't work :( – SnowyNe Mar 6 '18 at 14:26
• @SnowyNe What do you mean? The code I have given compiles and gives what you expected. – Denis Mar 8 '18 at 10:04
• If I use \bibliography{\nameOfMyBibliographyfile} it gives me the error: Undefined control sequence – SnowyNe Mar 10 '18 at 12:55
• Again my code compiles. Ypu probably do not know about MWEB. The only thing you have to remember are the \bibliography{nameofypourfile} and \bibliographystyle{plain}.. No backslash before the name of your file. – Denis Mar 11 '18 at 15:10
