Dear Nasser,

Thank you very much for your quick even when you are so busy.

The function HornerForm can factor part of the express, but still not the most compressed:

bb1 = -Det[{{1, 1, 1}, {y2, y3, y4}, {z2, z3, z4}}];
bb = HornerForm[bb1]

The output is
-y4 z2 + y4 z3 + y3 (z2 - z4) + y2 (-z3 + z4)

appearently it can be factored furthermore:
y4 (z3-z2) + y3 (z2 - z4) + y2 (-z3 + z4)


Thanks,
Tang Laoya
