Good day,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am relatively new to mathematica, and I am using it to fit a formula to a dataset that I have. To begin with, I am having issues with a very simple part, namely with a ListPlot.

I have an xls file with 2 columns and 26 rows, corresponding to an x and a y value. Using import, I neatly get these into mathematica. However, when I use listplot, all I get is an empty plot, ranging between -1 and 1 for both the x and the y scale. I must be doing something simple wrong, but I honestly can't figure out what it is.

If needed, the xls can be uploaded somewhere, but I am not allowed to post links yet.

Now, the next part I haven't really tried too much with yet, but it is giving me cringes even trying to think about it. I have a formula in the form of

W^((A/a)*(1-e^(-a*t))), where A and a are parameters that have to be fitted, t is the x from the datalist and the output is the y from the datalist. W is a constant, that is determined outside of mathematica. Could anyone maybe point me to a tutorial or guide on how to get me started with this?

Thanks in advance
