Hello Matt,
Thanks for the reply. I corrected the ub and lb portion of my code.
I have not set the 'AlwaysHonorConstraints' option. It is probably set to the default value.
Some constraints of c(i) are off by as large AS 10 or 2000 ! So, it's not coming from the roundoff error, I guess.
Your help will be very appreciated.
Thank again,
Nazmul

However, I explicitly set a bound for W (between 0 and 900).
