I'm making my phd dissertation in LaTeX. Although I am a noob, everything works like a charm, but now I have to make the titlepage. My university had a LaTeX .tex file (with .sty file,...) which produces a titlepage.

I tried to include this titlepage with \include, but it won't work. Probably since both have a different documentclass etc. Is there any possibility to make one single .tex file (which refers to the titlepage .tex file?)

You can't merge document classes like that but most title page definitions are not that complicated, a few font size and spacing commands and perhaps a logo or two. It probably isn't that hard to add the relevant definitions to the preamble of your existing document. Hard to give details with no information though. – David Carlisle Mar 1 '13 at 20:02
indeed, that did the trick. Not difficult at all. – pieter Mar 1 '13 at 20:08

@pieter glad you got it working, if that's it we'll probably close the question as too localised as we don't like to leave questions unanswered. – David Carlisle Mar 1 '13 at 20:22
Note that you can also include a page (or some pages, or all) of an existing pdf file in your LaTeX document using the pdfpages package. – mbork Mar 1 '13 at 20:28
