Issue with nomenclature

Postby Lorenzoc1980 on Thu Dec 13th, 2007

Hello everyone,

I am trying to build a nomenclature in my thesis. I am using Miktex 2.6 and Texnic Center. I am invoking "makeindex" as follows:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\immediate\write18{makeindex thesis.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o thesis.nls}

I tested write18 and it seems to work. The input file thesis.nlo shows entries as I define them in my document, but when I build the file (pdflatex) I get the following message:

This is makeindex, version 2.14 [02-Oct-2002] (kpathsea + Thai support).
Scanning style file nomencl.ist.......
** Input style error (file = nomencl.ist, line = 70):
-- Unknown specifier lethead_prefix.
** Input style error (file = nomencl.ist, line = 71):
-- Unknown specifier lethead_suffix.
** Input style error (file = nomencl.ist, line = 72):
-- Unknown specifier lethead_flag.
...done (10 attributes redefined, 3 ignored).
Scanning input file thesis.nlo...done (0 entries accepted, 0 rejected).
Nothing written in thesis.nls.

Transcript written in thesis.ilg.

So nothing is written in thesis.nls and therefore it is not processed in the main document. Nomenclature does not appear in the document. What could be wrong? Question

Try making a batch fail with this information:

set path="C:\Programmer\MiKTeX 2.6\miktex\bin";%path%;
makeindex thesis.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o thesis.nls

Place it in your thesis file directory. Run the batchfile in yoyr theisdirectory instead of pressing "make index".

Be sure that the path to your Miketex 2.6 folder is the one listet above.

I had the same problem, but solved it this way. The reason was that my LaTeX files where placed in a network directory in school instead of on the local harddrive.

Hope it works for you.
