Hi Deepthinker, look up the command ReadList[] in the Mathematica Help browser. something like data = ReadList["filename", {Real,Real}, RecordLists->True] should get you the data. You might have the give it a few tries before you get what you are after, Then use ListPlot the plot you data. Hope it helps. Cheers.
