Default Guidance on when to use exhibit vs appendix vs attachment

An appendix is anything at the end of a (usually bound) document that is not
part of the main text. For example, in a nonfiction book that has chapters,
there may be several appendixes containing information that is useful or of
possible interest but too detailed or overwhelming or borderline irrelevant
to be incorporated in the main text. In a book that has "figures" in the
main body of the text, the illustrations in the appendixes may be called
"exhibits" instead. Otherwise, the term "exhibits" is usually used only in a
law/courtroom context. An attachment is, strictly speaking, something that
is physically attached, usually to a letter. If it were not attached, it
might be an "enclosure." If you send a letter with a copy of an invoice
stapled to it, the invoice is an attachment.

One example of appendixes: In the appraisals, appraisal reviews, and
consulting reports that I prepare for one client, appendixes often include
some or all of the following: Certification, Assumptions and Limiting
Conditions, a copy of his résumé, a list of his previous testimony, a copy
of his appraisal license, photos of the subject property, a copy of the
engagement letter, copies of faxes from the client or others, copies of
correspondence pertaining to the case, spreadsheets and tables of data
pertaining to the case, copies of printout from the Internet concerning case
issues or the geographic area, etc., etc. In other words, all types of
supporting documentation.
