Hi all,

Carl Woll advised me to check my use of MakeBoxes and Format. He
wrote:

"I'm assuming that you are using StandardForm as your default output
format, and that:

data;

doesn't generate any messages, while

data

does generate messages. If true, this suggests that rendering is a
problem. Rendering is controlled by MakeBoxes and Format statements.
You could try:

?MakeBoxes

and

FormatValues /@ symbols

where symbols is a list of symbols in data to see whether any
formatting statements have been defined. That's about all I can say
with the information you've provided."

After carefully checking each use of Format in my code, I found a bug
in a Module called by one of my Format uses.

Thanks Carl!
