```	  What have you tried?  I just did help.searhc("manova"), which led me
to manova and summary.manova, which contained a balanced example, which
I unbalanced as follows:

tear <- c(6.5, 6.2, 5.8, 6.5, 6.5, 6.9, 7.2, 6.9, 6.1, 6.3,
6.7, 6.6, 7.2, 7.1, 6.8, 7.1, 7.0, 7.2, 7.5, 7.6)
gloss <- c(9.5, 9.9, 9.6, 9.6, 9.2, 9.1, 10.0, 9.9, 9.5, 9.4,
9.1, 9.3, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 9.2, 8.8, 9.7, 10.1, 9.2)
opacity <- c(4.4, 6.4, 3.0, 4.1, 0.8, 5.7, 2.0, 3.9, 1.9, 5.7,
2.8, 4.1, 3.8, 1.6, 3.4, 8.4, 5.2, 6.9, 2.7, 1.9)
rate <- factor(gl(2,10), labels=c("Low", "High"))
additive <- factor(gl(2, 5, len=20), labels=c("Low", "High"))
DF <- data.frame(tear, gloss, opacity, rate, additive)

fit <- manova(cbind(tear, gloss, opacity) ~ rate * additive, DF)
f18 <- manova(cbind(tear, gloss, opacity) ~ rate * additive, DF[1:18,])
summary(fit, test="Wilks") # ANOVA table of Wilks' lambda

>      summary(fit, test="Wilks") # ANOVA table of Wilks' lambda

If you would like further help from this listserve, PLEASE do read
the posting guide! "www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html" and provide a
self-contained example of what you tried, explaining why it does not

hope this helps,
