# \thispagestyle{empty} and page numbering [closed]

I'm trying to suppress the page number on a few pages of a large document. I'm using `\thispagestyle{empty}` to perform this task, and it works exactly as I want it to. However, when I later compile the document, the page numbers are wrong in my Table of Contents. I have determined that it is the above command that is throwing off the TOC. How can I suppress a page number, but have the TOC count it?

`\thispagestyle{empty}` doesn't suppress advancing the page number. –  egreg Sep 8 '12 at 20:54
You have to run LaTeX twice to get the table of contents updated correctly. –  Andrew Swann Sep 8 '12 at 21:42
That was, indeed, the problem. Compiling twice fixed the issue. Thanks. –  Larry Tate Sep 9 '12 at 1:15
