Similar questions have been asked here.. but I cant seem to make the solution work for me. What I'm trying to do is just display the word APPENDIX, which is centred. Then after that, I would like to include some text. However, in the example below, it keeps displaying APPENDIX A.

How do I eliminate the 'A' from the appendix title?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[title]{appendix}

\title{appendixTest}
\author{Mr. Anderson}
\date{July 2021}

\begin{document}

    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    There is no spoon!
    
    \begin{appendices}
        \renewcommand{\appendixname}{APPENDIX}
        \centering\section{}
        
        \textbf{Title Here!}
        \newline
        Some appendix text here!!!!
    \end{appendices}
 
\end{document}

  • Doesn't it help to put an asterix for the section? So, \centering\section*{}

I saw that my comment did not help haha. But this does:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[title]{appendix}

\title{appendixTest}
\author{Mr. Anderson}
\date{July 2021}

\begin{document}

    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    There is no spoon!
    

    \begin{appendices}
        \centering\section*{APPENDIX}
        
        \textbf{Title Here!}
        \newline
        Some appendix text here!!!!
    \end{appendices}
 
\end{document}

This answer is for the article class but would be slightly different for the book or other classes that defined \chapter.

This MWE replaces your appendices environment by a simple \appendix as it appears that you might have only a single appendix.

% appendixprob.tex  SE 604719

\documentclass{article}
%\documentclass{report}  %%% produces different appendices layout
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[title]%  %% title option maybe irrelevant
  {appendix}

\title{appendixTest}
\author{Mr. Anderson}
\date{July 2021}

\begin{document}

    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    There is no spoon!
  
\appendix   %% just one so don't need appendices environment
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{APPENDIX}
%\appendixpage %% in article class prodes a \part title (left justified)
\begin{center}  %% center APPENDIX
\appendixpagename
\end{center}
       
        \textbf{Title Here!}
        \newline
        Some appendix text here!!!!
%    \end{appendices}
 
\end{document}

However, this version does use the appendices environment.

% appendixprob2.tex  SE 604719

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[title]{appendix}

\title{appendixTest}
\author{Mr. Anderson}
\date{July 2021}

\begin{document}

    \maketitle
    
    \section{Introduction}
    There is no spoon!
  
    \begin{appendices}
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{APPENDIX}
%\appendixpage %% in article class prodes a \part title (left justified)
\begin{center}  %% center APPENDIX
\appendixpagename
\end{center}
       
        \textbf{Title Here!}
        \newline
        Some appendix text here!!!!
    \end{appendices}
 
\end{document}

Processing either version produces the same result.
