Writing another section after the appendix

Postby Ali Sultan » Mon Jan 09, 2017 8:20 am

I am trying to write a short vita after the appendices part (the university requirements). I used to divide the dissertation into chapters and used "\include chapters" and everything is great so far. I tried to create a new chapter called 'Vita" in the main dissertation body. The problem is that the vita is given an extra appendix title. I also tried to add the vita as a section instead of chapter, it's given a section title within the last appendix body. Anybody knows how to add the vita in a single page after the appendices part ? Thanks

\chapter*{Vita}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Ali,

if Johannes' suggestion would not be, what you need, tell us the document class you are using, or even better: the whole preamble with settings. Johannes' code gives you the vita chapter without numbering (but also without an entry into the table of contents).
