 I am running into a confounding problem.  I wanted to build a source file for a paper by inputting separate sections into a master file (ie, in masterfile.tex, have a line “\input{section}”, and creating separately a file section.tex). I think I have done this successfully before.  This time, the first input worked.  Then I tried to input into the section the contents of a file subsection.tex, in the same way—that is, via a command “\input{subsection}”.  (Note that all three are in the same folder). I got an error “ Latex error: can’t find file subsection.tex”. So I tried instead, in masterfile.tex, to follow the first command \input{section} with a second command \input{subsection}.  Same error message. The file names I initially worked with are different, but that is the essence of the problem. So I tried to create a “minimal example”.  Here are two files, sitting in the same folder: l InputTest has just a standard latex template, followed by “\input{first section}”. Trying to compile this, I get the error message “can’t find file first section.tex”.  (that is, this time even the first input doesn’t work)  Here is the log file: Zbigniew Nitecki Department of Mathematics Tufts University Medford, MA 02155 telephones: Office    (617)627-3843 Dept.    (617)627-3234 Dept. fax    (617)627-3966 http://www.tufts.edu/~znitecki/ ----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex first section.tex (74 bytes) Download Attachment InputTest.tex (1K) Download Attachment InputTest.log (15K) Download Attachment

 Choose a name without spaces for the file you \input.
