Plotting Experimental Data

Hello all, I am a novice Mathematica user, and could use some help from some of you more experienced users out there. Here is what I am trying to do: I have a file which contains experimental data that I've taken. I have a mathematical function that I wish to compare and fit the data to. I can read in the data from the file into a list. I've defined the function, and can display a graph of the function. My problem (currently) is how to plot the data. The x-values are N*(step variable), the y-values are from the data file. I can generate a list of each, but I don't know how to generate the form {{x1,y1},{x2,y2},..} that I think I need to plot the data. I am running on a MacIIcx. If anyone has Mathematica Notebook examples that do anything like this I would appreciate it. If anyone is willing to answer simple questions by email or phone, please let me know. Thanks in advance for any help. -- Avi Feldblum ayf at pruxk.att.com or avi_feldblum at att.com 609-639-2474
