Hi Benedetto, with Mathematica version 5.1 without "ConversionOptions" it seems to work: fo = {{"aa", 1, 1., "ab"}, {"ba", 2, 2., "bb"}}; Export["Test", fo, "CSV"]; in = Import["Test", "CSV"] // FullForm List[List["aa", 1, 1.`, "ab"], List["ba", 2, 2.`, "bb"]] What is the ConversionOptions for?? With it you get the wrong answer List[List["aa", 1, 1.`, "ab"], List["ba,2,2.,bb"]] Daniel Benedetto Bongiorno wrote: > To All, > > My apologies for assuming you knew what I was referring to. > > If you Export a list of lists (500x20), that comprises a mix of strings, > integers and reals, as a "CSV" file and > then import back nto a note book, it no longer is a 500x20 list of lists.
