I would abort it (Alt-.) and then try to understand the code better. Can you test various portions of the program and see if they work and in a reasonable time? If you can build up your program in steps, maybe first using dummy routines to do the inner parts, and testing the actual inner parts with particular sets of data, you would probably save a lot of time. You could try to use the various Monitor routines to see what is happening. ?*Monitor* It is quite unlikely that your program is going to terminate successfully in 3 days and 1 minute! And, in any case, if the program is so complicated and time consuming you should make certain you understand the validity of the code.

How can I tell if it's in a loop?
