We present here the very first spectropolarimetric results obtained with the multiline spectroscopy mode (MTR) of THEMIS. The principal problems found during the data analysis are exposed. A first characterisation of the quality of this observing mode is given.

Key words: astronomical instrumentation: telescopes -- astronomical techniques: polarimetric -- astronomical techniques: spectroscopy
