Because you can't put together operations with the , operator. Something
happens: you can see, after pressing Shift+Enter, that the right cell
bracket became red, with a little circle: clicking to the circle gives a
message window with the error.

If instead, you enter single commands, make sure that you give the command
(as said) with Shift+Enter (or enter of the numerical pad).
