# Changing Template Header for Appendices

I am using a modified BYU Thesis Template for my thesis.

I want to be able to change the page header for the the appendices to read "Appendix A Data & Display" instead of "Chapter A Data & Display" where "Data & Display" is the name of one of my appendices.

Here is the relevant code from the class file:

% The fancyhdr package allows you to easily customize the page header.
% The settings below produce a nice, well separated header.
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fancyfoot{}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\chaptername \ \thechapter \ \ #1}{}}
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection \ \ #1}}

I suppose I should be using an if statement, but my appendices (in their individual tex files) start with \chapter{Data \& Display}

The line

\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\chaptername \ \thechapter \ \ #1}{}}

should be

\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\@chapapp \ \thechapter \ \ #1}{}}

to deal with the automatic change of name from "Cahpter" to "Appendix". Modify the page style in the preamble of your document:

\documentclass{BYUPhys}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example

\makeatletter
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fancyfoot{}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\@chapapp \ \thechapter \ \ #1}{}}
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection \ \ #1}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\chapter{Regular Chapter}
\lipsum[1-40]
\appendix
\chapter{Appendix One}
\lipsum[1-40]

\end{document}
• If my documnent is report class, how can I use your code? I want to left is section of each chapter. – minthao_2011 Feb 15 '14 at 5:37
