I want to put all posible permuatations in a single matrix. - - - - - - - - - - If you want each of four variables to be able to assume any value from 1 to 10, independently of the other variables, then you want all possible combinations, of which there are 10^4 = 10000. If you want to restrict them so that no two are alike, then there would be 10!/6! = 5040 of them. Which, if either of these, are you interested in? Roger Stafford
