Hello all -

I have run into what I hope is an easily resolved problem.  I am using
the LinearProgramming function to maximize an objective function, which
in the code below is called "objfcn".  "S" is a matrix representing the
equations with 761 rows and 1320 columns; "zerovector" is a vector, one
column and 761 rows, where each element is {0,0}, meaning that each
equation is exactly equal to zero; "constraints" is a list of 1320
constraints.  I have used LinearProgramming successfully in many
instances.  However, I now get an error saying that the system in
unbounded.  How can that be?  As far as I can tell my dimensions are
all correct.

Does anyone have any suggestions?  Has anyone had a similar problem?
Below is what the code looks like.

LinearProgramming[-objfcn, S, zerovector, constraints]
