From the body of the report:
- each appendix must be labelled with a number (or letter) and title
- the appendix numbers and titles must be listed on the Contents page under the heading Appendices (if more than one) or Appendix (if only one)
- each appendix must be referred to by number (or letter) at the relevant point in the text.
You will need to check with your lecturers which referencing convention you are expected to use.
Following is a summary of each system.
APA 7 addresses appendices and supplemental materials in Section 2.14 and on page 41:
- The appendices follow the reference list.
- They are lettered “Appendix A,” “Appendix B,” “Appendix C,” and so forth. If you have only one appendix, however, simply label it Appendix.
- Put figures and tables in separate appendices. The appendix title serves as the title for a table if it is the only table in the appendix.
- If you decide that certain figures and tables should appear in the same appendix, number them A1, A2, A3, and so forth, according to the appendix in which they appear.
- The materials in the appendix must not extend beyond the margins of the rest of the paper: Reduce the appendix materials as needed.

Note: This is an answer only for citing within an appendix. If you are looking for information on how to cite an appendix you have created within the body of your text, please follow this link.
The APA Publication Manual does not give explicit direction on how to cite external sources that are used within appendices. However, APA style favors the idea of keeping all sources cited in a single reference list. A good practice would be to cite your source information in your appendix with an in-text parenthetical citation, like you would in the body of your paper, and include the source in the alphabetical list with everything else in your References section. With a grey area like this, where the manual does not have explicit direction, it is often a good idea to check in with your instructor to ensure that your approach will align well with their expectations.
Appendix and addendum are similar in that both can be short sections at the end of a book. However, they contain different kinds of information, and they are there for different reasons.
