"Table" was the function I was looking for, so maybe I ought to broaden my request and ask for general advice on learning how to use Mathematica. Also, I have searched on the web and looked at comp.answers as well as elsewhere in this newsgroup, and I'm afraid I haven't been able to locate the comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica FAQ. Does such a document exist seperate from the general Mathematica FAQ located on Wolfram's website? I do tend to plunge right into things first and tidy up details later, so I hope I haven't bored anybody to absolute tears yet! I'm willing to make amends. Since I have taken up so much bandwidth already, I may as well go ahead and introduce myself to the newsgroup: I'm a third-year undergrad at the University of Utah, pursuing an engineering degree. Due to idealism or foolishness, I spent two of those years enriching myself in a fine-arts program before perceiving the illuminating light of science, with the end result that I am currently enrolled in only third-quarter freshman calculus and first-quarter sophomore physics. However, I will gladly answer any and all questions regarding music theory or music history, should such issues ever arise <g>, and I promise the day will come that I will even be able to answer a real technical/mathematical question relevant to this newsgroup. Again, thank you all for your patience and helpfulness, Brandon Burt
