It's probably worth noting that Sum[Log[Log[k+j]],{k,1,n},{j,1,5}] works just fine, and that's the way the Sum command is probably "intended" to be used. It would be interesting to check whether Table, Product, Integrate, and other commands using multiple iterators have this same problem, or whether it's unique to Sum. -- Richard Mercer richard at seuss.math.wright.edu "I meant what I said and I said what I meant, An elephant's faithful, one hundred per cent."
