Is there a specific reason for using a SEQ field to accomplish the reference? I suggest you select the {SEQ app \r 1 \* Alphabetic} field and define it as a bookmark. Then you can just use {REF bookmarkname} to refer to it. If you have multiple chapters or appendices in the same file, you'll need to define a unique bookmarkname for each chapter number and appendix letter.

I don't know why this doesn't work, except it didn't for me either.
