# Cross-referencing entries in glossary [closed]

I use the \gls{} command to cross-reference in my glossary, which spans multiple pages. However, instead of printing the page number of the page where I had referenced the entry, the first page of the table of contents is printed. I think that it may have something to do with the changing of page numbers from roman to arabic.

Is there any way around this?

MWE:

\documentclass [a4paper, 12pt] {report}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage[toc, nopostdot, nogroupskip]{glossaries}

\newglossarystyle{mylong}{
\setglossarystyle{long}
\renewenvironment{theglossary}
{\begin{longtable}[l]{@{}p{\dimexpr 8cm-\tabcolsep}p{0.5\hsize}}}
{\end{longtable}}
}

\makeglossaries
\newglossaryentry{q}{name=q,description=blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah}
\newglossaryentry{w}{name=w,description=blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah. Cross-reference \gls{z}}

• When I run this for entries such as a I get two page numbers: iii and 1. The reason for this is that there is a \gls{a} command on page 1 AND a \gls{a} appearing as a cross-reference in the glossary on page iii. I think that this is correct. – Andrew Aug 20 '15 at 12:57
• It seems that deleting the aux files and running makeindex again worked for me for the MWE. It however did not work for my actual tex file. I will attempt to make a better MWE. Thanks for your help, Andrew. – Sanjay Sekaran Aug 21 '15 at 1:10
