Respected Nick I am so grateful for your response. Actually i wish to split my data set into several matrices so I can perform Multivariate ANOVA on the extracted matrices. The solution that you have posted will simply transform my data set into a single matrix. Can you tell me the solution of this problem that how several matrics can be extracted from a data set on the basis of a grouping variable. Looking forward for a positive reply from your side.
