PDF hyperlink


In Latex i have written \cite{} to cite my reference. When my file is compiled to PDF file. I want when i click on the number which appeared it will take me to reference page and point out the particular reference.

What to add with \cite{} to make it working?

Many thanks

You need to use the hyperref package. See this, for example. I think if you just do a \usepackage{hyperref}, the citations will be hyperlinked automatically, but check.

hyperref cannot make a hyperlink from \cite{} reference. You should try natbib package instead (sic — you should use cite or natbib, not two of them. And natbib sometimes conflicts with hyperref package).
