RE: Q:ReadList is reading spaces with numbers - what do I do?

I just tried, copying the data you provided below. It worked. I got:
{{1,1,24496,1285,3310,31648,9203},{2,2,23598,1391,3230,31648,9123}} are
you sure you don't have tabs or other weird characters in the file? if
you want you can email me the file directly and I can try to reproduce
it.
(don't copy the file to mathgroup).

Luc.
