Dear all, As an editor of conference proceedings, I am adapting a LaTeX bst (bibliography style) file. I succeeded in a number of small changes but now I am facing a problem: I want to achieve that in the running article text, more than 3 authors are abbreviated as "xxx et al". Therefore, I need to adapt the function format.names in the bst file. But if I add such a function to my bst file (there was none), I get the error message: format.names is already a type "wizard-defined" function name What does this mean? I cannot find any information on this on the web. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks! Suzan Verberne -- drs.
