I want to add the abstract with its original Roman number. I have the Abstract in the IV page, something like this: \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Abstract}. ` Abstract1 Index2

But in the index the Abstract appears with the VI number and this is not correct. Please, help me. I want to add the Special thanks, Abstract and then the full table of contents (chapters, sections, etc.).

This is my code:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper, openany]{book}
\usepackage[spanish, es-tabla]{babel}
\usepackage[linesnumbered,ruled,vlined] {algorithm2e}
\usepackage[left=2cm, right=2cm, top=2.54cm, bottom=2.54cm]{geometry}
\author{Ing. NAME}

Move \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Abstract} to the start of Resumen/Abstract.tex so it is written on the first page of the abstract, not after the last page of it.
