Thank you Szabolcs,

I think that's what frustrates me because I figure that, although I 
know that dimensions matter as I continue working with a data 
structure within Mathematica, when something displays as two-
dimensional using TableForm then I should be able cut and paste it as 
such for other purposes, such as creating tables in another application.

Regards,

Gregory
