I want to add an appendix (questionnaire etc.) at the end of my thesis after the references. I use the article class and work with LyX: Document -> Start appendix here. But I am not getting it in the TOC.

\definecolor{document_fontcolor}{rgb}{0, 0, 0}
 breaklinks=false,pdfborder={0 0 0},backref=false,colorlinks=false]


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% LyX specific LaTeX commands.
%% Because html converters don't know tabularnewline
%% A simple dot to overcome graphicx limitations

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Textclass specific LaTeX commands.


\noindent \begin{center}
\textbf{Questionnaire (Case Study 1)}
  • \appendix switches numbering to Alpha. Now you can add what you want to have in your appendix. Use chapter if you have book or report, sections otherwise.

    You might need to use a \section{title of first appendix}, or \markboth{Appendix}{Appendix} (if it is missing in the header) or \appendixpage (if you are using the appendix package).

In your document, after the chapters, insert the appendix




where the appendix1 is defined in a appendix1.tex file:

    Labels always come after what they are supposed to label.

    although \chapter{appendix1\label{ref:appendix1}} is also OK.
