Writing my text I inserted Bibliography entries that were only rudimentarily filled in in the database.
I now started to complete the entries in the database, however the references in the text do not update automatically. Which means that my List of References at the end of the text stays the same rudimentary one.
Do I have to insert each reference again or is there a way to update them all in one go?
Thanks for any help!
I can reproduces this on Win 7 64bit with LO 126.96.36.199 and Ubuntu 12.04 with LO 188.8.131.52 - here's my bug report: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53165

OK, I will try again to explain my problem more clearly.
SITUATION: Writing an academic text with inserting references in the text.
--> tools --> Bibliography Database
I opened the database, typed in the entry data in the single fields and allocated a short name to each entry
in the text, when I want to insert a reference I select the short name from a dropdown menu via
--> Insert --> Indexes and Tables --> Bibliography Entry
voila, the short name in brackets appears in the text.
At the end of the text I select
--> Insert --> Indexes and Tables --> Indexes and Tables
to insert the List of References which shows all data I filled into the Bibliography Database
NOW: MY PROBLEM
when I now change the entries in the bibliography database, e.g. add or delete information, these changes are not taken over by the List of References when I update that field (Rightclick --> Update Index/Table)
Any hints on that? Or do I have to insert each reference into the text anew?

That did not work. The entry data of every single reference I inserted in the text is not updated by the data that I added in the bibliography database.
if I click on such a reference and select "edit" it still shows the old rudimentary data, not the data I manually added in the bibliography database. Even if I do edit the fields here, it does not take over the changes.
If I insert the same reference anew, it does. However I do not necessarily want to insert every reference again...
