I want to import data from a file on a disk (in drive"a") labeled  
"sxray.nb". This file (notebook) contains one un-named list of 
comma-delimited numbers (reals). I have tried using OpenRead:

In[1]:  xray = OpenRead["a:/sxray.nb"]

getting:Out[1]:  InputStream[a:/sxray.nb,22]

I then tried getting the list of numbers with the command:

In[2]:  xraydata = ReadList[xray, Number]  and also  
ReadList["a:/sxray.nb", Number].

to no avail.
How do I read this in? Please see attached  files where "ten7data2.nb" 
is the notebook I am working in.

Thanks for your time . I look forward to hearing from you.
