As the name suggests, im trying to dump the data section of the packet,

When you say not having any luck what do you mean? Do you get an error message, does it cause problems? What is the exact command you are using, on what OS? – GdD Feb 28 '13 at 15:39

options are case sensitive, -t means format of timestamp and I guess you want to use -T that set the format of output. Depends on what kind of data you would like to dump, e.g., http host, tshark -r file.pcap -T fields -e should be what you are looking for.
