I'm using


%\documentclass[prb]{revtex4}% Physical Review B

\usepackage{graphicx}% Include figure files
\usepackage{dcolumn}% Align table columns on decimal point
\usepackage{bm}% bold math

I have three appendices that are all being labeled as "A", rather than "A", "B" "C".

I tried (after consulting the stack exchange) using "\begin{appendices}...\end{appendices}" and also just using "\begin{appendix}...\end{appendix}" once instead of three times.

They all still get labeled as "Appendix A".

    for making it easier to help, you should create a complete minimal working example of the current status of your work. In a book class, adding chapters in the appendix creates a new letter A, B, .. for each chapter: like \appendix \chapter{First Appendix} \section{Section One} \section{Section Two} \chapter{Second Appendix} \section{Section One} \section{Section Two} Aug 1, 2016 at 19:25

Use the command \appendix instead of \begin{appendix}...\end{appendix}. Then follow the command with the text of your appendices. All following \section commands will be labeled with capital letters instead of numbers.

I included a couple of sections and a TOC in my MWE so that you can see the numbering styles change from the main document vs. the appendix. Hope that's what you're looking for!

(Note: remember to include a complete MWE when you post a question.)

    \section{Section One}
    Text for section one.
    \subsection{Subsection One}
    Text for subsection one.
    \section{First Appendix}
    Text for appendix one.
    \subsection{First Appendix Subsection}
    \section{Second Appendix}
    Text for appendix two.

My result looks like this: enter image description here
