```Herbert,

try this:

In[2] := M = Partition[Range[1, 9], 3]
Out[2] = {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}

In[3] := M[[3, 1]]
Out[3] = 7

In[4] := Position[M, 7]
Out[4 ]= {{3, 1}}

Hi folks,

Ok, let's say I have this

1  2  3
-----------
1| 1  2  3
2| 4  5  6
3| 7  8  9

A 3x3 matrice or array.  Each number in the array represents its' position
from top left to bottom right.

What I need to do is:

Find what position 1,3 is.  Just by looking at the array, we find that 7 is

Find what are the coordinates of 7.  Again just by looking at the array we
see that the answer is 1,3

I need to come up with a simplu function that will return these.

pos = GetPos(x,y)

coord = GetCoord(pos)

I've done this before, way long ago and can't find it.

Thanks.
