# Acknowledgement page + report

I'm writing a report and I want to place the Acknowledgement page without \section because it will number it 0.1

I tried to place it in another TeX document and use \input in the main document, but it did not work.

You can use the starred version of \section, \section*, to produced a non-numbered section as in the following example:

\documentclass{report}
\begin{document}
\section*{Acknowledgement}% This section is not numbered
\chapter{Chapter name}
\section{Section name}% This section is numbered
\end{document}


\section*{Acknowledgement}

\section*{Acknowledgement}\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Acknowledgement}

There is of course also \chapter* which I personally use for the acknowledgement in my thesis, but what to use depends on the style. –  Martin Scharrer Jul 1 '11 at 12:43
What if like to refer to the starred section by using \label{key}....\ref{key}. in this case I will encounter a problem which is LaTeX will refer to the section in higher order or the previous one. –  user11421 Feb 3 '12 at 13:57
