 Hello everyone. I am trying to read a .mat file created using another language, it's dimensions are 50*10. The code I am using is Clear["Global*"] SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]]; dataText = Import["listOfUVValuesLite.txt", "Table"]; However, once I load this, dataText becomes a vector of dimenson 50, being each element a series of 10 elements. Hoever, mathematica doesn't detect each element of dataText as a row, but as a single element. If I try to write dataText[[3, 1]] I get the whole row and dataText[[3, 2]], an error.Can someone please explain to me how to get a 50X10 or 10X50 matrix form listOfUVValuesLite.txt? I will attach it so test can be made.Best regards. Jaime. Attachments:
