[R] read.table problem

( As a total newbie to R ) I get this error when attempting to use
read.table to read a data frame:

"Error in type.convert(x, na.strings, as.is) : null string encountered"

(Is there help documentation for the type.convert function ( I could not
find it in the usual places)

This does not always happen, but seems to occur when I am attempting to
read data frames with more than a given number of rows.
