John: Mathematica can Import and Export many file formats: See for import: http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/Import look at what is at the top of the list. for export http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/Export look at what is at the top of the list. I think this should answer the last 2 questions. Your first statement has an implied question would mathematica be an economical way to solve your problem. I don't know!
