Mathematica File Import Question

  1. Jan 8, 2010 #1
    I'm an occassional Mathematica user (Ver

    I'm doing something now where I need to import a couple of large Excel files, no problem with that. I'm wondering, however, if there is a procedure to make the resulting lists created by the imported data permanent so that I don't have to re-import everytime I execute the file. Mainly, I'm trying to avoid having to carrying around those Excel files and re-doing the directory etc. in the program to import the data when I move from running it on one computer to another at work and home.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have used DumpSave for that purpose before. If you have trouble reading the DumpSave from one computer into another computer then you may need to use Save instead of DumpSave.
