# Manually setting chapter counter overrides TOC

I have parts for each year:

\part{2011}
...
\part{2012}
...
etc.
...


I want the chapter number to be the month of that year for stylistic purposes (e.g. like how the chapter number is shown here)

\setcounter{chapter}{7}
\chapter{August 2011}


But now in the ToC the link for the "August 2011" chapter points to the page for "August 2010". How can I fix this?

• Did you compile the main file twice? – Sigur Dec 8 '14 at 11:18
• Can you please provide a full minimal working example (MWE) both in order to demonstrate what you are trying to do and to help others help you. The MWE should look like \documentclass...\begin{document}...\end{document}, it should compile and contain close to the minimal amount of code needed to explain/demonstrate what you are asking. This saves everyone time:) – Andrew Dec 8 '14 at 11:22
• I guess the problem is the resetting of the chapter number from (12) to 1 for the next part (corresponding to a new year) this confuses hyperref -- however, the resetting is not done by default! – user31729 Dec 8 '14 at 13:23
• I guess one could append the year to the hyperref-label making it unique. – Johannes_B Dec 8 '14 at 13:39

The resetting of the chapter counter after a new part (= year) confuses the hyperlink settings from hyperref in some cases unless the option hypertexnames=false is used.

This 'solution' uses an automatic setup of month names in loop, but it's not suited of course in this form for a productive run with content between the month chapters

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage{forloop}
\usepackage{assoccnt}%
\usepackage{datetime}

\usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage{bookmark}

\hypersetup{%
hypertexnames=false
}%

\newcounter{monthloopcounter}
\newcounter{yearcounter}
\setcounter{yearcounter}{2009}

\DeclareAssociatedCounters{part}{yearcounter}

\makeatletter
\makeatletter

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\part{\theyearcounter}

\forloop{monthloopcounter}{1}{\value{monthloopcounter} < 13}{%
\chapter{\monthname[\number\value{monthloopcounter}] \theyearcounter}%
}%

\part{\theyearcounter}

\forloop{monthloopcounter}{1}{\value{monthloopcounter} < 13}{%
\chapter{\monthname[\number\value{monthloopcounter}] \theyearcounter}%
}%

\part{\theyearcounter}

\forloop{monthloopcounter}{1}{\value{monthloopcounter} < 13}{%
\chapter{\monthname[\number\value{monthloopcounter}] \theyearcounter}%
}%

\end{document}


I used assoccnt package to add a co-marching counter which is updated each time a new \part is used.

• hypertexnames=false works fine, thank you! – wrongusername Dec 9 '14 at 7:59
