Hello all, I have been using mathematica for years now. I intensely use versions 3 and 4. While using mathematica I've encountered a mysterious problem -mysterious to me at least- that's been recurring independent of the version. Whenever I use the notebook, after a certain time and effort of programming with correct intermediate results, I start getting peculiar outputs following some more additional programming. At this point of course I start deleting any additional material to be able to go back to the closest functioning state. Alas, I end up finding this state corrupted, and get truly odd outputs. This problem usually occurs after pasting some part of another previously used program. A while back I was advised to open the notebook in another editor and delete or add a line or two. But this remedy doesn't work either. Hence, I end up rewriting the code. My major question is that, is there any other individual suffering from this type of phenomena or are these only my omens? And also are there any patches, service packs or upgrades etc. that I'm missing maybe? Such tools would be useful in either of the two versions that run on NT 4.0. Best Regards. Aybek Korugan
