Is there a way to have have the Position function return a value without the brackets. Say there are two lists, letter = {a,b,c,d} and number = {1,2,3,4} If I call letter[[2]] I get b but if I use letter[[ Flatten[ Position[ number, 2 ] ] ]] I get {b} I have several large lists that I am searching through and then need to print out the values and I would like to have the brackets removed from the text reports. I hve tried several different methods but nothing seems to work. Thank for any help Brian
