### Where to create makeindex code?

Hi,

I would like to make a nomenclature with units, designations etc. for my diploma (bachelor) thesis. However I have trouble in figuring out how to perform this command line task in Windows:

makeindex hfilenamei.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o hfilenamei.nls

from http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/nomencl/nomencl.pdf, page 2.

Despite several attemtps with google, I still haven't found a way to compile a nomenclature. Ending up with an error telling me of filename extensions, I assume the error is related to the above mentioned line of code.

After reading this topic http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=6093&p=23813&hilit=nomenclature+make#p23813 (Nomenclature error), I now get this message instead:

Process started This is makeindex, version 2.14 [02-Oct-2002] (kpathsea + Thai support).Scanning input file Rapport.idx...done (0 entries accepted, 0 rejected).Nothing written in Rapport.ind. Transcript written in Rapport.ilg. Process exited normally

I use MikTex 2.8 and Texmaker on Windows XP.

Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

Well, finally I sorted it out. However I would like to have a listing containing the symbol, unit and the description. For now, it is with the unit to the (far) right. I use the code below. Can anyone btw tell me, why the pagelayout isn't applied to the first page, when it works for the toc and list of figures.

Regards
