How do I include a chapter reference within the table of contents without giving it a chapter number? I am using the report document class.

Normally, I would create a chapter as follows:

\chapter{Some Chapter}


but this results in the chapter being given a number. Currently I am using

\chapter*{Some Chapter}

You can use

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\protect\numberline{}Some chapter}


just after your \chapter*{Some chapter}. For an automated approach, define your own \chapter command (say) \mychapter:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{xparse}% http://ctan.org/pkg/xparse
\NewDocumentCommand{\mychapter}{s o m}{%
\IfNoValueTF{#2}%
{\global\edef\chapToCname{#3}}
{\global\edef\chapToCname{#2}}%
\IfBooleanTF{#1}
{% \mychapter*
\chapter*[\chapToCname]{#3}%
}{% \mychapter
\chapter [\chapToCname]{#3}%
}%
}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\mychapter{A chapter}
\mychapter*{Some chapter}
\end{document}


The macro interface is provided by xparse.

You can insert it using \addcontentsline.

\documentclass{report}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{A chapter}
\chapter*{Another chapter}

If you would use one of the KOMA-script classes scrbook or scrreprt, you could use the command \addchap, which provides exactly what you want.
