Dear Richard,
Thanks for your reply.
To be honest, I don't know what question she/he has asked. As I have said , I have followed the procedure which she/he suggested. But, I still can't import the raw data for processing. I double clicked runner.exe, selected Sixpack, entered to the Samview interface, clicked Add file, and selected a file from the attached, it prompted WARNING! Filename contain characters not compatible with IFEFFIT. Theother function like Background Removal is the same case. That's the problem I encountered. As I selected Athena, it prompted: Cann't execute Grnd.exe to open the graphics window. I have re-installed the programme, but it still won't work. Since you have said there's nothing wrong with the data, I really don't know how to solve this problem. 
Best regards
Sorry for the trouble. It's a little hard to tell what's gone wrong,
but here are some hints:  The icon to run athena (and others) simply
runs the program "runner.exe" in the Ifeffit "bin" folder (usually
C:\Program Files\Ifeffit\bin).   This program sets the path and other
environmental variables so that GrWnd.exe can be run.
Some suggestions:
   -  Try clicking on "runner.exe" in the Ifeffit bin folder.  A
simple selection box should pop up and you should be able to choose
Athena, Artemis, etc.
   -  Trying clicking on GrWnd.exe in the Ifeffit bin folder.  A
window should pop up.
   -  The installation was not complete, or got moved somehow.
Reinstalling might help.
If the solution isn't obvious from those, let us know what happened
for each of these steps.

There's nothing wrong with the data (I opened one of the files), so at this point I suggest you reinstall IFEFFIT, or answer Matt's questions in the hope of understanding and solving your problem (without the re-install).

I have not looked at the data you sent.  Did you expect I would?  You
have not answered to my original questions.    At this point, I want
you to tell me why do you keep posting questions to this list when you
have not answered the questions in my original reply?

Explain this, then answer the original questions, and then we may be
able to start helping you.  We will not analyze your data,  and we
cannot help you unless you help us understand what does and does not
