In Mathematica, you should use Goto (note the capitalisation and lack of space) as an absolute last resort (i.e. never!). There are loop constructs like While that can take care of just about any situation, not to mention the higher level functional constructions. David Bailey http://www.dbaileyconsultancy.co.uk
