# Importing Data Issue, Breaking Up Elements

I am trying to import a comma delimited text file as a Table and I am having two issues:

First, the file imports all of the numbers that should be separate columns as a single string. This is not very useful for actually using the numbers in calculations.

Second, since the numbers are imported as a string, even if I am able to separate them, will I be able to use them in mathematical operations?

Here is a pastebin of the code

• Why dont you post the code here, format it properly and make a self contained post ? – Sektor May 4 '15 at 8:46
• You can try importing it as a CSV file using Import["150428a.txt", "CSV"] – kglr May 4 '15 at 9:11
• There is absolutely no need to put things like "Solved" in the title; if you have been sufficiently helped by an answer, you can upvote (once you have the privilege to do so) and then accept. – J. M. is in limbo May 4 '15 at 10:06

a = Import["150428a.txt", {"CSV", "Data"}]
