# [Tex/LaTex] Numbering of subsections in the appendix

appendicesnumberingsectioning

I am trying to write an appendix where:

• The appendix is considered as a section, and has the title "appendice"
• Subsections are numbered with letters (it does it for sections by default)

However, I can't get the appendix to be called anything, neither have I succeded in modifying the default numbering.

Would anything like this example match your needs?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\lipsum[1]

\appendix
\section*{Appendix}
\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\Alph{subsection}}

\subsection{Appendix Subsection}
\lipsum[2]

\subsection{Another appendix Subsection}
\lipsum[3]
\end{document}


Here's how it looks like:

If I understood correctly, you do not want to use any other \section than for the headings "Appendix" in itself, so a solution is to use \section* at this place and modify the command that issues subsection numbers by deleting the section number (otherwise you would get .A, .B,...) and printing the subsection counter in capital alphabetic form: this is what the

\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\Alph{subsection}}


line does.
