7

I'm trying to get the figures and labels in my appendices to have the same format as the rest of the document. In my main thesis.tex file I use:

    \backmatter % book mode only
    \appendix
    \include{Appendix1/appendix1}

and then in the appendix1.tex file I have:

    \chapter{Appendix A - Data}
    \label{ch:App1}

This produces my appendices as I wish, displaying "Appendix A - Data" in the table of contents etc. However, it also restarts the numbering of figures and tables. So for example I would have Figures 5.1, 5.2, ... in Chapter 5, presently I have Figures 1, 2, 3, ... in Appendix A, whereas I would rather something along the lines of Figure A.1 etc. The same applies to Tables.

Also, when I reference the appendix in an earlier chapter using:

    Appendix \ref{ch:App1}

It is referenced as "Appendix 7" (I have 6 preceding chapters) as opposed to "Appendix A" as listed in the contents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    \backmatter disables numbering of chapters. Remove it and remove also "Appendix A" from the title.

The command \backmatter disables chapter numbering. If you want to number the appendices, put them before \backmatter (or remove \backmatter altogether).

The standard output you get with

\appendix
\chapter{Data}

is something like

Appendix A

Data

so you don't need to add "Appendix A" to your chapter title.
