For example, after putting the data into a Mathematica compatible format, i.e., data = {{"1/2/01", "TBill", 0.67}, {"1/3/01", "SP", 0.78}, {"1/4/01", "inv", 0.5}, {"1/5/01", "inve", 0.6}}; Simply doing DateListPlot[data[[All, {1, -1}]]] will generate a plot. There will be warnings since "1/2/01" could be Feb 1, 2001 or Jan 2, 2001. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
