Le Huy, the data is accessible through


or, if you want to access individual elements, e.g.,

 A.NewTextDocument(2,1)  % get element in row 2, column 1


OK I got it! thank you so much Mischa Kim! one more problem: how can I add data to each cell of my uitable individually! i mean: after each calculation in my project (in my case: the calculation is in the code For i= : ), i want to add each result to the cell that i plan to, and the result may be a number or a string. How is the code i can use? I 'm beginner so I hope your welcome!thank you!
