🤔 GPT-4o FAILS TO PRINT FULL ANSWER EVERY OTHER TIME?

Hello, people.

No matter how many prompt adjustments I try, I cannot get GPT-4o to give me full answers (I am using Batches for prompting).

My set up:

  1. I need GPT to get me prices for a list of items.
  2. I give GPT the instructions and the list of items. (temp=0.000001, topp=0.1)
  3. GPT gives answers, but every 2nd or 3rd time it’s missing at least one line of result.

No matter what I try differently, it always seems to be missing some answers (or giving answers in a different order than I ask for).

The prompt has Steps, multiple clarifications on what to do and has been re-written at least a 100 times to make it as clear as possible on what I need. It includes steps like "Before printing out the answer, go over the list and make sure there are no missing items in the list. If there are any missing items - print them out. Repeat this step until all the items are printed., etc.)

Any clue if this is fixable, or is it just the way GPT-4o with more complex tasks?

Make sure you don’t have any easy-to-occur stop sequences…
