# [texworks] message from TeXworks user(MiKTeX)

I'm using texworks with miktex to typeset files on windows (XP).
I have a bib file (mybib.bib) and in my tex file I have the instruction
\bibliography{mybib}

When I put mybib.bib in the same directory as the tex file, everything is fine. But I have many tex directory and only one mybib.bib, so I want to specify a path to the bib file.  Neither (a) setting the TEXINPUTS environment variable to this path, nor (b) using edit->preferences, choosing the Typesetting tab, and adding
--include-directory=C:/Program  Files/MiKTeX 2.8/bibtex/bib/base        (that is where I put mybib.bib)
to the set of BibTeX arguments works.  What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,
