Dear group,
 I have a tab delimitted text file with 21 column and
1988 rows. When I read the file:

D1 <-
> dim(D1)
[1] 1811   20

It reads only 1811 rows from that file.

I saved this file as CSV file and I read it again

> D1 <-

> dim(D1)
[1] 1987    1

This timer it reaad correct number of rows and wrong
column numbers. 

Can any one suggest how to read a tab-delimited text
file and read in corect number of lines. 

thank you.
