I made a file called test.txt with the contents: ((x,y)->z) x y z 123. 456. 623. 234. 245. 567. 678. 456. 783. I ran "java visad.ss.SpreadSheet" and loaded test.txt into cell A1. It works fine. If your data does not appear, please report back with a more detailed explanation of any error messages or strange behavior that you see.
