I am having Microsoft excel write Double values to a text file so fortran can read them from the file.

double precision :: x

READ(unitnumber, * ) x

Does is matter if the text file contains 1.23  1.23E0 or 1.23D0 ?

No, it does not matter.

Thanks, Steve.  That's what I was finding from some hasty testing, and it's comforting to have it confirmed.
