It is difficult to pinpoint your mistake without the actual code; 
however, I hope that the following line will help you to understand how 
to fix the weird result you got.

Say we want all the entries of a 2x10 matrix being equal to the product 
of their indices except when the indices are equal:

Table[If[i == j, 0, i*j], {i, 1, 2}, {j, 1, 10}]

{{0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10},
   {2, 0, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20}}

Hope this helps,
