Hm, this seems strange. I am using 4.1 and what happens is this: Export["R:\\test.dat", {{"2005-01-24", "2005-02-14"}, { "2005-01-24", "2005-02-14"}}] Import["R:\\test.dat"] {{1980, 1989}, {1980, 1989}} !! R:\\test.dat 2005-01-24 2005-02-14 2005-01-24 2005-02-14 In the Import case Mathematica seems to have actually evaluated those cells as if they hadn't been strings, but integers. In your case, it certainly seems to be a bug, though. How can two identical list parts be exported/imported in a different way? Regards, Sebastjan Meznaric
