# Problem with Appendix sub-indices

Is it possible to index the sub sections of an Appendix, both in the table of contents and the Appendix itself? At the moment, what I am getting is something like the picture attached; The subsections are indexed in both locations, yet the the capital letter (e.g. A) is missing and the numbering starts with a dot (.). Any ideas?

EDIT1: The same issue appears in the "List of Figures" and "List of Tables" as well. In that case, apart from capital A, dot is also omitted.

EDIT2: Here is the project.

Please edit your question to provide examples of the code you're using at present or, better yet, a full MWE (minimum working example) that generates the issues you're trying to resolve. There are a lot of components involved in the creation of tables of contents, lists of figures and tables, and section headers as well; without knowledge of your specific setup, it's going to be difficult for anyone to provide a satisfactory solution. – Mico Aug 19 '12 at 11:51
@Mico It is part of a big project and unfortunately I am newbie at LaTeX. Could I post the link of the template I am using? – eualin Aug 19 '12 at 11:56
You certainly can. Just be sure to include as much of the relevant LaTeX code as you can. Thanks. – Mico Aug 19 '12 at 12:01
@Mico Thank you! Just uploaded the project. – eualin Aug 19 '12 at 13:28

I had a closer look at your project file. In my opinion your document class isn't a good choise.

Nevertheless your document class based on the standard document class book.

If you use the command \backmatter the internal conditional \if@mainmatter is set to false. This means that that \chapter doesn't get any number nor prefix.

To show this behavior here a little example:

\documentclass{book}

\begin{document}
\chapter{foo}
\backmatter
\chapter{bar}
\end{document}


Based on this information the level section with the prefix number \thechapter can be printed because you are using \backmatter.

At this point I want to recommend one of the modern document class memoir or scrbook. Both are well documented. I also recommend that you should avoid such templates. You will never know what the document class do.

thanks for your answer. I start using this template mainly because it was the best one I managed to found out there. I have almost finished my study, and now I just formatting the report. I don't think that I have the time to learn LaTeX from the beginning at this point, However, I very much appreciate your suggestions. But, could you please tell me again what should I do in order to fix that problem? – eualin Aug 19 '12 at 17:53
@eualin: In this case for the future ;-) -- Nevertheless comment \backmatter . – Marco Daniel Aug 19 '12 at 17:56
Apologise for the previous message. I wasn't quick enough to edit it before time-out expires. I tried to place \backmatter in the main file and the compile the project, but unfortunately it didn't work. Any ideas? – eualin Aug 19 '12 at 18:05
\backmatter is set in your main file. You have to remove it. – Marco Daniel Aug 19 '12 at 18:10
It works! Thank you Marco! – eualin Aug 19 '12 at 18:12
