In the pgfplot, I would like to have a line plot from a table which is read from a .csv file. I would like to have a line which is dashed and has a marker.

I put the code like this -

\addplot table[x=N,y=No_Sym][mark=*, red, dashed] {data.dat};

However this does not work. Can anyone tell me the right way to do it.

    The line styles need to be provided to the \addplot command, not the table keyword, so you would say \addplot [mark=*, red, dashed] table [x=N,y=No_Sym] {data.dat}; – Jake Jan 16 '13 at 9:36

The answer should be -

\addplot [mark=*, red, dashed] table[x=N,y=No_Sym] {data.dat};
