Realised that the two commands copied from Mathematica do not appear in the
actual form in my previous message.  Sorry for using the wrong text form.
What I meant were as flow:

1.  NIntegrate[f(x),{x,0,n}]

2.  N[Integrate[f(x),{x,0,n}]]

Dear all,

I would like to find out the difference between the following two commands
on Mathematica:

1.   <<...OLE_Obj...>> 

2.   <<...OLE_Obj...>> 

Is there anything wrong in writing in the 2nd way?  Can anyone tell me the
difference between the algorithm used by Mathematica (Versions 3 & 4) in
performing the above two operations?

For a same problem, both commands give the same numerical answer but the 2nd
has an error message.  Can anyone tell me why?

Best regards,
