hello, bala,

    thanks for the reply. I had an error with the command you gave. But I know
    what it does and slightly modified it. It put an extra entry in the TOC.

the answer was actually to a different
(but related) question).  i'm glad you
found it helpful.

    Finally I got rid of the \appendix and used following commands to achieve
    the goals




    {\bf APPENDIX}\\






there's an even better way to do this.
it's described in the ams author faq, at
the second question actually applies to
your situation better than the first, but
i want to take this opportunity to point
out this resource to other users of the
ams document classes.  the general link
for the entire faq is
and that has a box to enter search terms.
