```Hi LZ,

> How can I store the coefficients from the Fit function as a list?

The easiest way is to use CoefficientList.  For example,

data = (Random[Real, {-1, 1}] + 2  # ) & /@ Range[25];
dplt = ListPlot[data, PlotJoined -> False];
ft = Fit[data, {1, x}, x]

coef = CoefficientList[ft, x]

DisplayTogether[{
ListPlot[data, PlotJoined -> False],
Plot[Evaluate[ft], {x, 0, 25}, PlotStyle -> Red]
}];

Another way is to use Regress instead as this can output the coefficients as
a list anyway.  For example,

Needs["Statistics`LinearRegression`"]
Regress[data, {1, x}, x, RegressionReport -> {BestFitCoefficients,
SummaryReport}]

coef = BestFitParameters /. %

Dave.
