# ! File ended while scanning use of \@writefile

I am getting below error when I am running the report to generate the PDF from GUI. I am using Texmaker 4.4.1. I also tried deleting aux files and other unwanted files. but, it is not helping me getting rid of this error. Any ideas or workarounds to fix this ?

Thanks

• Welcome to TeX.SE! I do not get this error. (Of course, I commented out \input{samplebody-conf_2} and the bibliography related files, which I do not have.) – marmot Jan 6 at 22:42
• usually that error is caused by a corrupt aux file from an error in an earlier run, so first delete all aux and toc files associated with that document then check you have no fragile commands in \caption or \section etc. – David Carlisle Jan 6 at 23:09
• Thanks for the comments @DavidCarlisle. Indeed it works when I comment the body file and bib file. I deleted aux file but I am not able to see .toc file .Any idea where it is located ? – Apurv Jan 7 at 10:14
• unless you have a \tableofcontents to make a table of contents you won't have a toc file. – David Carlisle Jan 7 at 10:30
• Yeah exactly I have added the code for toc file generation now. referred your comment from this 'tex.stackexchange.com/questions/66476/…' Now I started everthing but still the same. I am also attaching the log file getting generated during execution for your reference. There are some citation related warnings but those are not harmful.
