There is just at this time another active thread about that topic and
the complications of it, check   todays posts or the archive...

As others have mentioned in other threads, it is always a good idea to
present a minimal but complete example of code that shows your problem,
otherwise people who spend the valuable time to help you have to even
think about examples themselfs. In this case you are lucky, because an
example was easy to make up :-)

This is how I would do it:


You can copy and paste from the output cell or use something like (be
careful to not overwrite an existing file when executing this!):

 ToFileName[{$HomeDirectory, "Desktop"}, "formulas.f"],

to create a fortranf source file containing the code.
