I am using \includefile{} to add a preliminary literature review to a thesis proposal. The specifications require that "Appendix" be printed in the upper right hand corner. I tried ending my proposal main like this:


But it doesn't work. The entire literatureReview file has the header "REFERENCES" in the upper left corner. The proposal main uses a plain page style, and the literatureReview currently has no sections in it. Does anyone know the proper way to do this?

EDIT: Here's a minimal compilable version:






    %which contains:
%   author={Takeuchi Koichi and Inui Kentaro and Fujita Atsushi and Takeuchi Nao and Abe Shuya},
%   title={Construction of Compositional Lexical Database Based on {L}exical {C}onceptual {S}tructure},
%   journal={IPSJ SIG Notes},
%   publisher={Information Processing Society of {J}apan (IPSJ)},
%   year={2005},
%   month=sep,
%   volume={2005},
%   number={94},
%   pages={123-130},

\title{A Title}
\author{Nathan Glenn}

Random citation: \parencite{TakeuchiKoichi05}. 


And here's the class file I used:

\ProvidesClass{test}[2011/5/20 BYU Honors Thesis proposal]





    \Large{\@title}\\An Honors Thesis Proposal
    \vspace{6 pc}

literatureReview.tex has no preamble, and does not change the page styles in any way.


You can use the \markboth command to obtain the desired mark, so you could use


Since you are already loading the fancyhdr package, you can add the following lines to the file literatureReview.tex:

  • The "REFERENCES" heading is gone, but there is not "Appendix" in the header. – Nate Glenn May 29 '11 at 1:04

    @Nate Glenn: I've updated my answer with another approach using the fancyhdr package. – Gonzalo Medina May 29 '11 at 14:55

    Is there anyway to set it back to automatically determining the header based on the chapter title? – Alec Jacobson Apr 13 '13 at 11:11
  • @mangledorf Not sure about what you are asking. Perhaps you can ask a follow-up question? There you can link to this question to provide the background. – Gonzalo Medina Apr 13 '13 at 21:57
