Thanks Alan, this example worked for me too and I found out the reason.

For the appendix as well as for the other chapters, I use the  
\include command in connection with \includeonly for easier  
maintenance during the period of writing.
And with this special combination (\include and \includeonly) the  
appendix comes up with "Chapter" in front of it. (Any thoughts why?)
Now I use the \input {myappendix_a} and it comes up right in the TOC.

Thanks for your help.

  A last question: Is there way to get the headline "Appendix A  
BlaBla" modified, so that it appears justified and e.g. in the middle  
of the page?
