I am generating an appendix in my report using the command

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\begin{document}
\begin{appendices}
\include{appendix1}
\end{appendices}
\end{document}

This command itself is generating a section header page as shown in image. This page contains a page number. I don't want a page number on this section header page and rest pages should have page number as it ease. How to do this enter image description here

    Which package defines the appendices environment? – Mico May 9 '17 at 9:11
  • You example produces error messages but not the result you've shown. Please post a minimal but working example (MWE). This would help us to reproduce your problem and to test our suggestions. – Schweinebacke May 9 '17 at 9:21

Here's a solution with xpatch:

\documentclass[12pt]{report}

\usepackage[page]{appendix}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{xpatch}

\makeatletter
\xpatchcmd{\@chap@pppage}{%
\thispagestyle{plain}}{%
\thispagestyle{empty}}{}{}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\begin{appendices}
\chapter{}
\lipsum[1]
\end{appendices}

\end{document}

You can redefine the \appendixpage command in the preamble of your document like so.

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{appendix}

\let\plainappendixpage\appendixpage
\makeatletter
\renewcommand{\appendixpage}{%
  \begingroup
  \let\ps@plain\ps@empty
  \plainappendixpage
  \endgroup}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
    \begin{appendices}
        \appendixpage 
        \lipsum
    \end{appendices}
\end{document}

It should be noted that this code comes from "Stefan Kottwitz" on this page so he should be credited and the question could be marked as duplicate.

  • No it is not working. – Prachi Agarwal May 9 '17 at 9:04
  • Then please post a MWE in your question so that I can reproduce the problem. – Georg May 9 '17 at 9:07
  • I tried doing as mention in first reply of this link-- tex.stackexchange.com/questions/37357/… but problem with this is it is generating new section header page without number but previous page remains as it ease. – Prachi Agarwal May 9 '17 at 9:07
  • please tell what is MWE – Prachi Agarwal May 9 '17 at 9:08
  • Minimal Working Example -- The code you provide us at the moment can't be compiled. Because we do not have the appendix1 file and it lacks \usepackage{appendix}. – Georg May 9 '17 at 9:11
