I have a problem with Appendices. I include them all in one big file. Here I include chapters and after including chapters, I include appendices as follows:


at the beginning of a file appendixA I have:

\chapter{Computation of thickness}
%\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Computation of thickness}
bla bla bla
at the beginning of file appendixB I have:
\chapter{Computation of surface tension of glass}
%\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Computation of surface tension of glass}
bla bla bla

the problem is that in the whole file, all appendices are labeled as A and not A, B and C.

Could you tell me, where I have a mistake? The numbering is working very well for all chapter I have in the previous text, but once I change into appendices it stops and all is numbered as A.

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). – egreg Jul 22 '11 at 9:57

Since you are using the appendices environment (of memoir class or of the appendix package), no \appendix command is required.

Without the environment, only one \appendix command must be issued.
