That's the cut-and-paste problem. Sigh. > Gregory, Table[i*j, {i, 8}, {j, 8}] returns a list with dimensions {8, 8}. But if the expression inside Table returns a single-element list, then the table will have dimensions {8, 8, 1}. Example: Table[{i*j}, {i, 8}, {j, 8}]. So you could try using Table[ First[(complicated expression that returns a single element list)], {i, 8}, {j, 8} ] Szabolcs
