I do not know if this would work for ‘.dat’ files, but it works for the ‘.txt’ file you posted:
T = readtable('switch.txt', 'HeaderLines', 5, 'Delimiter','\t','ReadVariableNames',false);
Time = T.Var2;
iv1 = T.Var3;
plot(Time, iv1)

Hi guys, I have a similar problem. I saved some data in a .dat file. I can load the data to matlab and it saves it in an array but I don't know how to plot a graph using the data. Any help would be appreciated.
