# Deleting the numbering behind the Appendices in the TOC

I have a problem about Appendices.

I want to delete the numbering behind the Appendices in the TOC while I want the Appendices pages to appear by default in the first page of each Appendix. In other words, I ONLY want to delete the numbering.

I hope I be clear enough.

If I understood correctly, you only have one Appendix, and you want it to show in the TOC like "Appendix: Title ........ ##" where ## is the page number and not like "Appendix A: Title"? – Juan A. Navarro Aug 31 '10 at 16:45
No, I have 4 Appendices and want to appear in the TOC like "Appendix A. Title1" "Appendix B. Title2" ... without any numbering at the behind of them. – Vahid Damanafshan Aug 31 '10 at 17:29

Here is an example of the appendix package that should help:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[title,titletoc]{appendix}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\clearpage
\section{first}\section{second}
\begin{appendices}
\section{more of it}
\end{appendices}
\end{document}


The title option puts "Appendix" in each appendix section heading, and titletoc puts "Appendix" in each ToC entry. More options are available, such as page to insert a page that says "Appendices". See the documentation for full details.

I knew there had to be a better way! – TH. Sep 1 '10 at 3:42
fantastic, that's it. thanks – Vahid Damanafshan Sep 1 '10 at 5:50

It sounds like you are not using \appendix before your appendices.

\section{Normal section}
\appendix
\section{First appendix}
\section{Second appendix}


Of course, that's going to show

1  Normal section
A  First appendix
B  Second appendix


and not Appendix A. The obvious fix of sticking \renewcommand\thesection{\appendixname~\Alph{section}} after \appendix does not work well with the table of contents. I'm sure there's a better way to do that.
