In the first set of code, I've duplicated your resulting file (I think). The result isn't a 2x3 matrix at all. The brackets are there because hend, pend, ... are lists (because of the way you defined them).

data={{84.44222381154862}, {17.295098646610068}, {0.9999464544412083} \
,{0.00005354555879104163} ,{0.6314412255157023} ,{0.16406999044034634}};


In this version, Flatten eliminates the brackets:



Flatten@data could be replaced by First/@data, or the definition of each variable could include First, as in hend=h[time]/.First@sol or hend=First[h[time]/.sol.
