Hi, I have a hard time trying to understand why I get the floating-point error in this particular case: I dont't see what's wrong with the list I am trying to plot. Here it is: In[1]:= small=Take[vec,2] Out[1]:= { {30.06, 23523}, {56. 38,00005}} In[2]:= ListPlot[small] Then I get the error message: Graphics::gptn : Coordinate 30.06 in {30.06, 23523} is not a floating-point number. Hope someone can explain this to me. Best regards, Henning Heiberg-Andersen
