Besides what Frank and Georg already mentionned, there are some other 
solutions :

* [textfile] (directly in Pd)
* (zexy lib) [msgfile] : a kind of [textfile] with some additional features
* (zexy lib) [matrix] : each line can be thought as a list of floats (the 
reading index you need would correspond to the row#)

I personnaly used [msgfile] and [matrix] with great satisfaction for storing 
data presets ala [coll].
