Although I haven't checked the text file, I think you'll have some success if you start with Open File -> Read Text File -> Close File and use the Spreadsheet String To Array function to convert to a 2D array of doubles.


You could also consider the From Spreadsheet File VI.


When plotting the graph, open the context help (Ctrl-H), mouse over your graph, then click the link for Detailed Help in the context help box. This will lead you to information about the data types that are accepted for multiple plots on one graph.

You should find something to get you started on how to put values into a graph.  The rest is using the read from spreadsheet VI already mentioned

You are using a waveform graph which needs a start time, dT, and an array of Y values assuming equally spaced X values.


When you have X values and Y values, you need to use XY graphs.
