First, have you looked at the documentation for read.table, i.e., ?read.table

Second, have you looked at the R import /export manual listed under the help menu?

If so, then what parts of those instructions are not clear to you? Have you done a
dir() command from the prompt to ensure you are in the same directory as the file
you are trying to read? If all that is true, what is the command you are using,
and what is the exact error message you are getting?

This info will help us help you.
