hello a very simple question, "sometablename[[X]]" gives me the Xth row of table , like below. f = {{1, 2, 3, 4}, {1, 4, 6, 77}} {{1, 2, 3, 4}, {1, 4, 6, 77}} f[[1]] {1, 2, 3, 4} I am not able to find the syntax that can give me Xth column of a table. i dont want to transpose it and use. and I tried #, thank you cimon
