Al- I've had good kuck converting text files to MINITAB by using Microsoft Excel as a go-between. Excel has a nice "wizard" for delimiting data, so you take almost any format and get the variables into different columns. MINITAB can then import excel files. i can never remember the exacts steps?I tend to relearn it each time I do it. By the way, this is all on the Mac, with Excel 5.0, and Student Minitab v8. It may be even easier with the newer windows versions of Minitab.
I'm a little behind on moving all of this to the TI-83. That's one of a zillion summer projects. BTW, is there any way for us to send TI-83 data lists or programs (as Graphlink files) via email? That would be a cool thing to do.

The ASCII files seem to be in a format which takes a great deal of work to translate into Minitab or TI-82/83 format. Does anyone have either or both of these translations done or know of an easy way to translate these files?
