Based on what you didn't say, it doesn't sound as if you've set up the
book file to manage the <$chapnum> variable.

In the Book file, highlight the first Appendix, right-click, select
Numbering > Chapter and set the tab to use Alpha characters and start
with 1/A. Apply it and save.

Then highlight the subsequent Appendix files, right-click, select
Numbering > Chapter and set the tab to use Alpha characters and
increment. Apply it and save.

Then update the book and see what it looks like.
