Best prepare the output in R as strings; there are alternatives in LaTeX, but 
it can be more work.

r = data.frame(dollar = runif(10), stddollar=(abs(runif(10))))

r1 = data.frame(dollarstd = as.character(sprintf("%4.2f (%

If you don't like the rather C-ish sprintf, you can use format(C) instead.
