Hi Kresimir, Plot has the attribute HoldAll. Therefore Table is not evaluated before being fed to Plot. This makes Plot think that there is only one curve. You may improve this by wrapping Table[..] into Evaluate to enforce evaluation before plotting. There is another reason you should do this, otherwise Table is evaluated for every point of your plot. hope this helps, Daniel Kresimir Kumericki wrote: > I create several functions using Table and want to plot them > on the same plot with different styles.
