saving a list.

I am writing a program that inputs 2 lists of numbers each with two columns, and creates a 3rd list also with two columns. For Example, lets say that the files file.txt and file2.txt look like this: file.txt file2.txt 1 1.5 0 3.6 2 4.6 2 1.9 3 6.8 6 4.2 I can read them into Mathematica with ReadList A = ReadList["file.txt", {Number, Number}] B = ReadList["file2.txt", {Number, Number}] then I do all my operations that I need to do on them and come up with a two column matrix C. In plain old Mathematica form it looks like, say, C = {{1, 2.7}, {2, 1.9}, {3, 3.0}} But I want to get a file, call it file3.txt, that contains just 2 columns, like file.txt and file2.txt. I've tried TableForm and MatrixForm, etc. to format the output and then used Save to save it, but when I open the text file, I get all this junk in there (Gridbox, TableForm, and all the braces and stuff actually in the text file). So is there a way for me to have Mathematica save the information as a plain old text file with two columns of numbers, no words, no braces, none of that junk. Thanks for any help. -Dave Berube
