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.

I just received the data disk from Freeman for Moore's Basic Practice
of
Statistics. Thanks Penni.

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?
