Hi, x[1]=1 is a function value definition *not* a "subscripted" locl variable. You mean Module[{x}, x[1] = 1; x[2] = 2; x[1] + x[2]] Regards Jens skker wrote: > > Why can't I use subscripted local variables in a Module? > > Module[{x[1], x[2]}, > x[1] = 1; > x[2] = 2; > x[1] + x[2] > ] > doesn't work. I could fix this code by replacing x[1] by x and x[2] by > y. But there is a more serious problem when I want a non-fixed number of > > local variables.
