LV 6i: Serious Formula Node problem!

I have found a "serious" problem converting VI from LV 5.1.1 to 6i:
I have same "big" equations for density calculation with upper 65 coefficients
and 3 o more inputs variables.
Everything goes well and fast in 5.1.1, when I open this VI in LV 6i there
is automatically conversion
of exponential symbol (from "^" to "**") with non apparent problem,
but the result of equation is WRONG, very, very incorrect (from 0 in 5.1.1
to same negative milliard...).
I tried with more different equations and the results are similar...
For the last: when I re-convert my VI in version 5 and run it in LV 5.1.1
everything re-work PERFECTLY! Strange.
Have I found a "terrible" BUG?
Someone have found the same problem?
Do you have some ide
a?
I will wait some news from you.:-)
Thanks for reading this LONG news.
Bye, bye.
Alfio.

Hi Alfio
Some times ago I had a simmilar problem but with labview 4.x. My equation
in the
formula node was (and still is) very large too but the problem was related
with the
x^2 terms. When these terms were changed with x*x the vi worked fine. Very
strange.....Also, this problem did not appear with small equations. Try a
smaller equation and see what happens. And more: with LV 5.1 (I am using
this version)
there is no problem.
Good luck.
Ricardo.
