What are you doing when you say you don't get what you want when you import the CSV files? What do you get? What are you expecting? You should be able to import CSV files created by Excel using Import[filename,"CSV"] Alternatively, with the current version of Mathematica you could import the Excel file directly by doing Import[filename, "XLS"] Finally, if there is only numeric data in the file, saving the file from Excel as a tab delimited file rather than comma delimited would allow usage of ReadList[filename, Number, RecordLists->True] Which will be faster than usage of Import. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
