I work on a article type document and I would like to force Latex to use "Appendix A" without giving a name in place of the simple "A" that it gives me when I start a new section in the appendices.

My example :

when I type this

    % I write it because I would want to keep the (A.1) notation for 
    % equations' label for appendices


\section{First section}




I get this in the body of the document :

A nameA

and in my toc I get

Appendix A nameA ... 
Appendix B

which is fine (as far as the toc is concerned)

But I would like that I got this in the body :

Appendix A nameA
Appendix B 

How to do this ?

    Please post a MWE of your code starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document} – Red Sep 12 '13 at 14:19

Just add the title option when including the appendix package:
