I have a large, one column data set in a tab-delimited text file.  It
appears to read correctly when I use data=ReadList["filename", Number], but
when I tried to do a ListPlot or perform a Fourier transform I get an error
message that says it is not a list of numbers or pairs of numbers.  I have
also tried data=Transpose[Readlist[....]], but this did not make any

Has anyone encountered this before or know how to fix it?
