English term or phrase: appendix
What's the difference between a Schedule and an Appendix to a contract? And what are they in German?

Anhang
Explanation:
a schedule is a listing i.e. Liste/Aufstellung, an appendix usually consists of one or more documents atached to a contract: i.e. Anhang.
Thus a schedule may form part of an appendix/annex, or it may be a listing of all the appendices.
That is my understanding.
