----------------------------------------------------------------------- TO: William MacDonald & Lou Talman While: Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] , {x,0,Pi} ]; will not work, if you simply insert an Evaluate, it works nicely: Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] //Evaluate , {x,0,Pi} ]; Fredrick I.

It certainly doesn't work in v2.2 for the Mac nor in v2.2 for the NeXT. Are you quite certain that you didn't use Table[Plot[Sin[n x], {x, 0, Pi}], {n, 1, 5}] which works nicely?
