Better to change the method you are using. I would put each command in a separate cell. This way, you will have one command followed by its output below it. I like to also use the Report style sheet, this makes output cells more clear. But if you want to have more than one command in the same cell, you could always use Print[] to print the output of the command, and this way you can add a string label to the Print command to help you determine which command it was. Something like Print["x=", x = Pi/2]; Print["a=", a = Sin[x]]; Print["c=", c = Sin[x]]; x=Pi/2 a=1 c=1 OR x = Pi/2; Print["x=",%]; a = Sin[x]]; Print["a=", %]; etc... --Nasser
