Chris,

I tried placing in the format you suggested and received this error message:

END PROGRAM.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 396, in <module>
ValueError: incomplete format key

I am getting an error message, I presume because of wrapping or length. Imagine the above statement, but expanded, as I am working with more than 28 variables in this loop, and even making the names really short is making the statement too long. Is it impossible to wrap and make this work? I know there are ways to wrap strings, including lists of variables, but here I have a statement/function. At what point are you wrapping it? Can you show the wrapped form and the error message? As a general rule, you can safely wrap anything that's inside parentheses. for ( var1, var2, var3 ) in zip( Variable1, Variable2, Variable3 ): pass That may be a tad excessive, but you get the idea :) ChrisA
