I don't know much about the digital filtering, but if you want to
convert a matrix to a vector, it's pretty simple.  Like this:

FilteredTestDataSub=CONVOL( (Data[0,*])[*] ,Coeff)

Any vector or matrix with a [*] after it will be converted to a
one-dimensional vector.  The parentheses are needed because Data[0,*]
is an expression.
