[Tex/LaTex] Suppressing page number in list of abbreviations in LaTeX report


I have a LaTeX report as follows in a file called Main.tex:








And I'm trying to create a list of abbreviations from the file Glossary.tex which is imported into Main.tex.

Glossary.tex is simply:

\chapter*{List of abbreviations}
\newacronym{jdbc}{JDBC}{Java database connectivity}
\newacronym{jsp}{JSP}{Java server pages}
\newacronym{sql}{SQL}{Structured query language}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of abbreviations} 

After doing this I am supposed to run this instruction at the Windows command line in the same folder as the LaTeX files:

makeglossaries main.tex 

But what I do find is that the abbreviations display with page numbers like this;

JDBC Java database connectivity. 14

So how can I surppress the page numbers and is it possible to use two columns for the abbreviations?

Best Answer

For two columns, try one of the mcol glossary styles. For example:
