I'm a beginner in Latex, and I want to use this software to do my report for uni. However, I'm stuck on how to "not" number my executive summary in the table of contents.

Attempt

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\pagenumbering{alph}


\begin{document}

    \tableofcontents

    \clearpage

    \section{Testing section}
    ...
    \clearpage

        \subsection{interesting}


\end{document}

Above is my attempt on creating the table of contents, however, I'm not sure where do I begin as I actually got this sets of codes from the internet. If I do /section{executive summary} before table of contents, it wont be included in the TOC. However, if I did it afterwards, it will have numbers at the start.

So I was wondering how can I achieve something like this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

  • @Harish Kumar You mean \section*{executive summary}

  • @HarishKumar: Yes, I tried that too, however, if I do that, it will not show in TOC.

  • @Jojo You need \addcontentsline for that. Any way you have an answer. :-)

If you don't want chapters or sections without numbering you'll need write as \chapter*{summary} or as \section*{summary} However if you write as such, it won't show in TOC. So you'll add that to TOC manually.

\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Executive Summary}

Below is example code for your question.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\pagenumbering{alph}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\clearpage
\section*{Summary}                                     %unnumbered section
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Executive Summary}      %manually add to TOC
\clearpage
\section{Testing section}
...
\clearpage
\subsection{interesting}


\end{document}
