```Jose,

Using rules you could do this:

In[157]:= data = {{x, y}, {x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}}

Out[157]= {{x, y}, {x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}}

In[158]:= data1 = data /. {x_, y_} -> {x, 1/y}

Out[158]= {{x, 1/y}, {x1, 1/y1}, {x2, 1/y2}, {x3, 1/y3}}

This uses the ReplaceAll (/.) command (see section 2.4.1 in The
Mathematica Book).
