I want to import some data which consists 3862 lines, each lines looks like
07-01-85    101.101897  07-01-85    101.101897

So 1. and 3. rows are dates and should be read that way and 2. and 4. rows
are real numbers. I have tried something like this:
data = Import["file.txt", "Table", DateStyle -> European];

Indeed this is easy in Excel but I would like to use Mathematica 4.1.
(I properly getting environmental damage :-)
