this is possible - no problem. Just do it with the 'ASCII conversion tool'
which is part of the Jeol epma software package. (Program is normally
installed at /users/epma/etc/asctool).

By performing the conversion with this tool you can select whether you get
the couts by one pixel per line or a matrix of the data.
