(Disclaimer: I'm pretty new to FrameMaker)
I've set up an Appendix and the numbering is working:
But in the TOC, things aren't working correctly:
1) I'd like the page numbers to say A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2 etc.
2) The numbering isn't working for the headings

Just in case you need them, here are the content styles:
If this TOC is a generated file, it will have a Reference Page "TOC", and you may need to add a
<$chapnum>- in front of each
Thanks Bob - that solved problem #1 🙂
This is a three step process:
Update the book.
I had the chapter numbering set up and it works in the content, it just doesn't work in the TOC:
You taught me what I always wanted to know, how to properly build a new TOC numbered correctly, including appendicies. Of course this is also good for the chapter files. To all of you on this thread, thank you very much!!!
Can you post a screenshot of the TOC reference page? Please with Text Symbols shown.
The numbering in your TOC should be controlled solely by the building blocks on the reference page. You shbould not set the numbering in the single TOC pagraph formats.

This is what @Winfried Reng was talking about in his reply.
Disable the paragraph auto-numbering for those two styles outlined in red, and replace the 0.0.1 and 0.1 with the <$paranum> building block to pull the numbers from the source docs. Update your book.
OH! That did the trick - thanks Barb and Winfried!
