```If you happen to be using Mathematica 4, you can use All to select columns.

In[7]:=
tab1 = {{a, b, c}, {d, e, f}, {g, h, i}};
In[8]:=
tab1[[All, 1]]  (*selects the first column*)
Out[8]=
{a, d, g}
In[9]:=
tab1[[1]] == tab1[[1, All]] (*[[1]] and [[1,All]] both select the first
row*)
Out[9]=
True
In[10]:=
tab1[[{1, 2}, {1, 2}]] (*selecting a submatrix*)
Out[10]=
{{a, b}, {d, e}}
In[11]:=
tab1[[{1, 3}, {2, 3}]] (*selecting elements 2 and 3 of rows 1 and 3*)

Out[11]=
{{b, c}, {h, i}}
