# How to display just the word APPENDIX in appendix title?

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*{} Jul 12 '21 at 15:17

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}

• That solved the problem. Thanks!! Jul 12 '21 at 15:22

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.
