I have just been trying the same thing, here is what I found (after three hours! Am I stupid or Mathematica?): if your data is in a mathematical List, such as mylist={{1, 4, 0.4}, {2, 5, 0.6}, {3, 6, 0.8}} then do the following file=OpenWrite["foo.dat"] WriteString[file, TableForm[mylist]] Close[file] This should do it.
