I thought it was possible to define constraints in matrix format, though I doubt it would be more convenient. The easiest way to define that many constraints is in a -forvalues- loop. If you have that many constraints than they probably follow some sort of system, and you can make use of that in a loop. Are you very very sure that you have 300 equation? My first reaction to that is that you are doing something very wrong, or you are trying to do something that can be achieved much much more easily in another way. -- Maarten --- Beat Hintermann <bhintermann@arec.umd.edu> wrote: > Bob > > Imagine you have to specify several hundred constraints like that. > Instead of writing them down one by one I'm looking for a way to do > this in matrix notation.
