I am receiving the following error:

You can't pop an empty literal stack for entry Orth
while executing---line 3023 of file jurabib.bst
1 is an integer literal, not a function, for entry Orth
while executing---line 3023 of file jurabib.bst

The MWE that produces it, looks like:

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\usepackage[titleformat=all,howcited=normal]{jurabib}
\begin{filecontents}{literatur.bib}
@Book{Orth,
  author     = {Elsbet Orth},
  title      = {Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main im Sp\"atmittelalter: Fehderecht und Fehdepraxis im 14. und 15.\,Jahrhundert},
  shorttitle = {Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main},
  date       = {1973},
  series     = {Frankfurter historische Abhandlungen, Band~6},
  address    = {Wiesbaden},
  howcited   = {1},
  school     = {Frankfurt am Main},
  type       = {Dissertation},
  dissyear   = {1971}
}
\end{filecontents}
\begin{document}
Test\footcite{Orth}.

\bibliography{literatur}
\bibliographystyle{jurabib}
\end{document}

Any ideas? I am using the latest jurabib in MikTeX and never had any trouble with the stack in BibTeX before.

Unlike biblatex jurabib does not know a date field, it only knows year. If I change from date to year things work just fine.

\documentclass[ngerman]{scrartcl}

  shorttitle = {Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main},
  year       = {1973},
  series     = {Frankfurter historische Abhandlungen},

Orth, Elsbet: Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main im Spätmittelalter: Fehderecht und Fehdepraxis im 14. und 15.Jahrhundert. Wiesbaden, 1973 (zugl. Dissertation, Frankfurt am Main, 1971), Frankfurter historische Abhandlungen 6 (zitiert: Orth Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main)

  • Thanks @moewe, seems I was too blind, as this was the initial reason I was modifying this entry. Fixed the problem also in the large document with the entry. – TobiBS Sep 13 '18 at 16:23
  • @TobiBS It is a bit unfortunate that the error message is not more informative. But I guess since year is a required field the developer did not put much effort into catching the error earlier and giving a more useful error message. – moewe Sep 13 '18 at 16:25
  • Well even more unfortunate, that in other circumstances the date instead of year is not creating any visible issues (other than omitting a year in the printout): @Book{Orth, author = {Elsbet Orth}, title = {Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main im Sp\"atmittelalter: Fehderecht und Fehdepraxis im 14. und 15.\,Jahrhundert}, date = {1973}, series = {Frankfurter historische Abhandlungen}, address = {Wiesbaden}, howcited = {1}, shorttitle = {Die Fehden der Reichsstadt Frankfurt am Main}, } – TobiBS Sep 15 '18 at 11:31
