I'm struggling with \usepackage{endfloat}, \documentclass[12pt]{elsarticle}, and the appendix.

What I want:

I want the main text, followed by tables and figures inserted/cited in the main text (floated to the end of the main document only), and then I want the appendix with its tables exactly where specified. I want the main text tables to be numbered 1, 2, ..., T. I want the appendix tables to be numbered A1, A2, ..., A.

I'd also like the main document through the end floated tables to be numbered 1, 2, ..., P. Then I want the appendix to start over with roman numerals.

Here's what I tried:

\documentclass[12pt]{elsarticle}
\usepackage[notablist]{endfloat}
\usepackage{threeparttable}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\lhead{}
\chead{}
\fancyfoot[C]{}
\rhead{My short title \thepage}
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}

% get rid of footer included in elsarticle
\makeatletter
\def\ps@pprintTitle{%
 \let\@oddhead\@empty
 \let\@evenhead\@empty
 \def\@oddfoot{}%
 \let\@evenfoot\@oddfoot}
\makeatother

% appendix page numbering
\let\origappendix\appendix % save the existing appendix command
\renewcommand\appendix{\clearpage\pagenumbering{roman}\origappendix}


\begin{document}\thispagestyle{empty}

\begin{frontmatter}
\title{My long title}

\author[add1]{Me\corref{cor1}}
\ead{me@email.com}
\author[add1]{You}
\ead{you@email.com}

\cortext[cor1]{Please address correspondence to me}
\address[add1]{Address}

\begin{abstract}

My text page 1

\newpage
My text page 2 and Table \ref{tab}.

My page 3

\newpage

\begin{table}
\centerline{\begin{threeparttable}
  \caption{My table}
  \label{tab}
  \centering
  \begin{tabular}{lrr}

  \bottomrule
  \end{tabular}
  \begin{tablenotes}
  \small
  \item My note
  \end{tablenotes}
  \end{threeparttable}}
\end{table}

\thispagestyle{plain}

\makeatletter
\efloat@restorefloats
\makeatother
\setcounter{figure}{0} % Start again
\renewcommand\thefigure{\arabic{figure}}
\setcounter{table}{0} % Start again
\renewcommand\thefigure{\arabic{table}}

\appendix

My appendix and Table \ref{apptab}. I want the appendix to appear after Table \ref{tab} which should be floated to the end of the main document. 

In other words, I want the main text, followed by tables and figures inserted in the main text (floated to the end), and then I want the appendix with its tables exactly where specified. 

\begin{table}[H]
\centerline{\begin{threeparttable}
  \caption{Table should be in appendix}
  \label{apptab}
  \centering
  \begin{tabular}{lrr}
  \toprule
 Col1 & Col2 & Col3 \\
  \midrule
  7 & 8 & 9 \\
  10 & 11 & 12 \\
  \bottomrule
  \end{tabular}
  \begin{tablenotes}
  \small
  \item My note
  \end{tablenotes}
  \end{threeparttable}}
\end{table}

\end{document}

    i would assume that the endfloat package would do the job. get your floats from the main body of the doc by using \processdelayedfloats before \appendix; process those that appear in the appendix in the normal way for end of document. – wasteofspace May 20 '14 at 10:52

From @wasteofspace:

This worked for me.
