After simulation
solution = NDSolve[{x'[t]== 1.7 x[t],x[0]==1.0},x,{t,0,10}];

solution is now like a list of rules, use Apply or its shortcut /. to
extract values
{5,x[5]} /. solution


Table[{t,x[t]} /. solution,{t,0,10}]

\!\({{{0, 1.`}}, {{1, 5.47398247034581775`}}, {{2, 29.9643350630800888`}}, {{

hth, Christian.

ps: there are good examples in the mathematica book, you will find
solutions to all kind of syntax problems faster than on usenet ;-)
