Sorry to "double" post this (seems to fit here much better than the other thread)... but I think I am starting to see the light on this today... I haven't looked at it in awhile. for the case of binning in range, code shown above, I am using this:

First, this a an monthold thread. I'm sorry but if you haven't not pay enough attention to what has been suggested for month (including Matt's remark about the missuse of sparse), the a lot time is waste.

Thank you Matt and Bruno!! I apologize for not staying with this topic, but I have quite a bit on my plate... and I am taking your advice, and TRYING to learn. You have both been very helpful and I hope you won't give up on me yet!!

So I think a couple lines fixed the problem:

I understood, and appreciate your help. accumarray it is!!

Bruno... I can't believe I missed the funcitonality of histcn and accumarray!! This definitely gets me closer to my ultimate result.

Thank you very much Bruno, and others, for giving your advise...

Take a look at example 10 of the doc of accumarray:

Thank you Bruno... The extreme speed up I see using accumarray may negate the need to bin all of the index values for storage. But I will play with this more.
