But what did you use to write the numbers to a file? For me under Mathematica 5.2, after generating some data, inp = Table[Random[], {5}]; fin = inp * 10^# & /@ Range[-12, 12, 2]; The command Export["test.dat", fin]; works just fine. As can be seen from online help on Export[] and NumberForm[], there are more options available if you need a particular alignment or to lose scientific notation entirely. Regards, Dave.
