# Table of content for Dictionary

I have one problem in the latex \tableofcontents.

Look at the image I circled.

For Dictionary from A-Z               1-250


How to do that in latex in \tableofcontents?

Is it possible in LaTeX?

Well, the command \addtocontents{toc}{STUFF} adds anything you want to the table of contents. You need to format your entry yourself, however.

If you look into TOC of a LaTeX file, you see that its entries have the following structure \contentsline {SECTION}{\numberline {NUMBER}TITLE}{PAGE}{HYPERLINK NAME} (the last argument is there only if you use hyperref). So you need to:

1. Put \label{first_page} on the first page.

2. Put \label{last_page} on the last page

3. Put on the first page \addtocontents{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline{} Words}{\pageref{first_page}--\pageref{last_page}}{}}

You many need to change section to chapter here depending on the style you want.

Good luck!

Your information are really spare. The modification based also on the packages which creates the index. For example you can use makeidx, scrindex or splitidx ...

In my example I uses the class scrbook in combination with scrindex:

\documentclass[ngerman,idxtotoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{scrindex}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\usepackage[user,abspage]{zref}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\makeatletter
\if@openright\cleardoublepage\else\clearpage\fi%
\@mkboth{\indexname}{\indexname}%
}
\phantomsection
{\usekomafont{chapterentry}%
\protect\hfill%
\zpageref{startindex} -- \zpageref{endindex}%
}}
}
\AtEndEnvironment{theindex}{\zlabel{endindex}}
\makeindex
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{foo}
Text\index{Text}
\printindex
Test
\end{document}
