Betreff: [texhax] Problem with Appendices

Dear support

I hope this is how you do things in support...
I am using Latex running under Miktex 2.8 with class: amsbook.

Lenny fncychap, fancyhdr, and it all works perfectly, except...
In the CONTENTS list of a .dvi output (i.e. at the start of the finished pages), the word chapter appears correctly as in Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc... up to 17 in my case.

But when it gets to the Appendices, it goes Chapter A, Chapter B, rather that Appendix A, Appendix B...
So the numbers change to letters as they should, but the word chapter stays as chapter.
The titles on the page headers in the appendices Left and Right are OK.
I understand that \appendix should be called ONCE only, then one should revert to \chapter – even in appendices.

Hope you can help.
