Hi, Have data fortran data file with numbers like 0.447562485933D-01. I need all the digits, but mathematica seems to only read this as 0.0448062. I can read it as a string and get "0.448062494397D-01" but when I use ToExpression, I get -1 + 0.448062 D So how can I read in all the digits. thanks for any help, chris
