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
