Others have explained why/how you should use the built-in heading styles
for the appendices. I'd like to point out that your numbering makes no
sense. Appendix 1? Containing Table A.1? Ugh.

Use alpha numbering for the appendices -- Appendix A contains Tables
A.1, A.2, etc. Appendix B contains Tables B.1, B.2, etc. That's much
clearer and less confusing, and makes your separate appendix styles
unnecessary.

HTH!
