Hello everyone, Say I have the list x={2, 7}. Is there a command I can use to get 2 rather than {2} when I ask for x[[1]], and 7 rather than {7} when I ask for x[[2]]? Doing so would solve my problem with my tables being too deep to be able to cut and paste directly into the table objects of other applications like word processors and spread sheets. Regards, Gregory
