Your wording is very confusing or perhaps you haven't stated your problem quite right. When you say you "ask for x[[1]]" what does that mean if not entering x[[1]] somewhere? And if that is what you mean, then since In[14]:= x = {2, 7}; In[15]:= x[[1]] Out[15]= 2 then there is something wrong with what you wrote above. Generally, it is better to post some code to eliminate this kind of confusion. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
