Hi,

you did not provide a test example and your code does not seem to work for me so
I can only guess what you meant by combining. The following function will
combine together any number of matrices provided they  all have the same length (number of rows):

combine[x___?MatrixQ /; Equal @@ Map[Length, {x}]]
:= Flatten[Transpose[{x}], {{1}, {2, 3}}];

For example:

In[19]:= tst1 = Partition[Range[12], 3]

Out[19]= {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}, {10, 11, 12}}

In[20]:= tst2 = Partition[Range[13, 24], 3]

Out[20]= {{13, 14, 15}, {16, 17, 18}, {19, 20, 21}, {22, 23, 24}}

In[21]:= combine[tst1, tst2]

Out[21]= {{1, 2, 3, 13, 14, 15}, {4, 5, 6, 16, 17, 18}, {7, 8, 9, 19,
  20, 21}, {10, 11, 12, 22, 23, 24}}

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Leonid
