Well, i'm going to try to clarify it a little, but, as I said, is not

posible to paste the complete code; the equations are just too big. I

also made a mistake writing the last email.

So, for example,

{eqns, cond}={f1'[t]==a11*f1[t]+a12*f2[t]+...+a1N*fN[t],...,

fN'[t]==aN1*f1[t]+aN2*f2[t]+...+aNN*fN[t], f1[0]==t01,...,fN[0]==t0N},

and

f={f1,f2,...,fN}.

If Something is, say 1, then

sol[[1, 1]]:

f1[t]->InterpolatingFunction[{{0.`,1200.`}},"<>"][t]

and sol[[1, 1, 2]] is just InterpolatingFunction[{{0.`,1200.`}},"<>"][t].

So, with

sol=NDSolve[{eqns, cond},f,{t,0,1200}][[1]];

a[t_]=sol[[1, 1, 2]]

b[t_]=sol[[1, 2, 2]]

i'm just extracting the solution for two of my variables, f1 and f2.

Plot "a" and "b",

Plot[{a[t], b[t]},{t,0,1200}],

was fast; however this:

Plot[{Evaluate[f1[t]/.sol], Evaluate[f2[t]/.sol]},{t,0,1200}],

was, somehow, imposible.
