How to include the word Appendix in the table of contents

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Some typesetting specifications create contents entries for each appendix using the appendix number only; others precede the number with the word Appendix. If your document shell uses the appendix number only in the table of contents, you can modify the entry by adding the word Appendix:

  1. Place the insertion point where you want the appendix title to appear in the document.
  2. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.
  3. In the entry area,
    • If you're using an article shell, type:

      \section*{Appendix x. The Title of the Appendix}

      where x. The Title of the Appendix indicates the number and title of the appendix.


    • If you're using a book shell, type

      \chapter*{Appendix x. The Title of the Appendix}.

    This command removes the automatic generation of the appendix number and changes the appearance of the title in the text to reflect what you have entered between the curly braces.

  4. Type a second command to add the now unnumbered section to the table of contents:

    \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Appendix x. The Title of the Appendix}.

    If you're using a book or report shell, substitute the word chapter for the word section.

  5. Choose OK.
