Hi Thomas,
first of all, this is an international mailing list and not everyone
understands German.

Furthermore, this list is for questions about TeXworks, which is just
a user interface.  Your question is about LaTeX/BibTeX, hence it's
better to ask on a mailing list for general questions about TeX:


This is an international list too.  If you want to ask in German, the
newsgroup de.comp.text.tex is appropriate.

I'm not a missioner.  If someone thinks that Word is easier to use I'm
not inclined to stop him.  But I recommend not to give up immediately
whenever a problem occurs.  LaTeX works, otherwise nobody would use it.
You certainly have some books in your bookshelf which were typeset
with LaTeX and contain bibliographies created by BibTeX.  How can this
be if LaTeX doesn't work?

Asking for help is the right thing to do in such cases, but you should
better ask on a list which is more appropriate.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
