# How to obtain a smaller-sized output from Solve

I am solving a system of 15 simultaneous linear equations using Solve. On running the code, I get a message saying "A very large output was generated" with options for viewing the ouput. I want to use the solution inside a larger program where the next step relies on the ouput of Solve. I am stuck unless there is a reasonable way for me to capture the output from Solve. Is there a way to do this?

You don't need to display the output; if you do sol = Solve[...]; you'll suppress the output (with ;) but everything will be assigned to sol. –  b.gatessucks Jan 4 '13 at 22:05
If you have not already done so, set Cubics->False and Quartics->False and see if that improves matters. –  Daniel Lichtblau Jan 4 '13 at 22:05
Because these are linear equations, why aren't you using LinearSolve? –  whuber Jan 5 '13 at 18:03

Is something like this useful?

s1 = Solve[Table[RandomInteger[100, {15}]. Array[x, 15] == y@i, {i, 15}], Array[y, 15]];
y[1] /. s1[[1]]

Thanks for the suggestions. I first put the set of equations as a SparseArray using CoefficientArrays function. Then solved using LinearSolve.
{b,m}=CoefficientArrays[Set of Equations, {Variable List}];
