Hello All, A search of Deja News turned up the very problem I need help on, but I couldn't find any response to it. The original posting is copied below. " Hi MathGroup !! I believe there is a Bug in the TableForm/MatrixForm when using the option TableDirections. In the Mathematica Book section 2.8.8. we have the example TableForm[ { {a, a, a}, {b, b} } ] which is essentially the same as TableForm[ {{a, a, a}, {b, b} }, TableDirections -> Column ] The result is a a a b b which is fine. But when I write TableForm[ {{a, a, a}, {b, b} }, TableDirections -> Row ] I don't get the output I expected a b a b a Instead I get the same output as before with the following error massage Thread::"tdlen": "Objects of unequal length in OutputFormsDump`HoldList[OutputFormsDump`HoldList [a, a, a], <<1>>] cannot be combined." Any comments ?!? Greetings Drago Ganic" Thanks for any help. Steve
