I now have a way to do it but there is another problem..

I use the Table command (I change the function for the sake of
demonstration)

sol = NDSolve[{y'[x]==1/2y[x],y[0.01]==0.1}, y, {x, 0.01,1}];

g=Table[ {y[i*0.01]/.sol}, {i,100} ];

ListPlot[g];

The error message is gptn: Coordindate .. in ... is not a floating-
point number.

The problem seems to be that y[x]/.sol generate not a "normal" number,
instead, the number is is a brace {...}.

Can anyone help me?
