David: The "HoldForm" suggestion works. My question came about because I recently purchased "MathStatica" and was working through the material on Maximum Likehood Estimate. The examples contained in the test provided output from inputs that constructed a likelihood function that contained the product sign, just like one would write it out if doing by paper and pencil. Through the use of function "SuperLog", the Log of the likelihood function would be presented with a summation sign. None of the examples used "HoldForm". My first thought was that a Mathematica setting was not set correctly (StandardForm not checked--It was)and that was the reason my output looked different than that in the text. Any comments would be appreciated. Larry
