AFAIK, Mathematica does not handle Microsoft Excel 2007 file format yet. So use an XLS or CSV file format, for instance. Assuming a file saved in XLS format that contains one sheet of 3 rows by 4 columns, you can use Inport[] as follow: In[145]:= imp = Import["Workbook1.xls"] Out[145]= {{{11., 21., 31.}, {12., 22., 32.}, {13., 23., 33.}, {14., 24., 34.}}} In[155]:= data = Transpose[Sequence @@ imp][[1]] Out[155]= {11., 12., 13., 14.} Regards, -- Jean-Marc
