Assuming your data is in a plain text file with columns separated by spaces, you can use something like the following: data = Import["C:\\My Path\\data.txt","Table"]; If you want to plot the data in column 4 vs. column 1, you can use something like: ListPlot[data[[All,{1,4}]]]; If you want to plot both columns 4 vs. column 1 and column 6 vs. column 2 on a single graph, you can use something like: <<Graphics`MultipleListPlot MultipleListPlot[ data[[All,{1,4}]], data[[All,{2,6}]]]; Take a look at the help for Import to see the multitude of file types you can import.
