Sorry, trapped in an office with no dictionary, so can't check. Wikipaedia offers both spellings.

I thought it was Appendix? <knows nothing>

Addendum or addenda, or appendices/appendix. Not annexe.

An appendix contains related material that supplements the body of the master document, i.e. technical specification ora document quoted within the main text, but would not be appropriate to have in the main doc.

An addendum contains information that you would have included in the text if you had it when you wrote it i.e. a design which was not completed when the main doc was originally written.

Or summat like that.

Ah but these are explanatory notes added on as an appendix to an appendix, which new boss asked me to put in as Annex(e) 1, 2 or 3!

Just found an online dictionary which says that Annex is US, Annexe English, so I'll run with that.

Sorry I meant to say appendix singular, appendices plural; addenda singular addendum plural.

I don't normally venture in pedant's corner blush
