Dear Michael,

If your dataset is large, you may consider my package savetable at


This is more memory-efficient than write.table.  Unfortunately, I have
not a window binary.

Best wishes,

 | Hi, 
 | Sorry about making this stupid question, but I did not
 | find the answer from documentation. 
 | I managed to read my spss .sav file into the R, no
 | problem.  Next I would like to write this data to a
 | file in ascii-format. I tried to use write.table and I
 | got no error messages, but no file either. What is the
 | right way to make it?  
 | At least write.table("c:\foo\data.dat") does not
 | work..
 | Thanks in advance! 
 | Michael
