Hi,

Could you please post the original values (not the values after the first iteration) as in the original message and the desired result without any program and temporary variables. Please be more specific on what you are trying to achieve.

Sometimes it is just easier to start from scratch than to look for an error in a foreign code.

Regards, Sergiy
