[R] simple if statement

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the help, but I should have mentioned that I want to do
this within a loop.  Perhaps it would be better for me to explain my
exact situation.

I am running two loops so that I can calculate estimates for years
1,2,3,4 and a categorical GPA variable that takes on three values
0,1,2 with only one set of commands.

Within the two loops I want to make LaTeX tables with the estimates.
I want to create a caption with some thing like "Low GPA Freshmen"
(Low GPA corresponds to 0) and so on for each table generated by the

The year variable is called uga.yr and the GPA variable is c.gpa

Do you know of a good way to do that?

Right now I have this command:
#Generate LaTeX output of table
latex(Estimates, file=paste(i, j, "tex", sep = "."), caption=paste(i,
j ,sep = "."), ctable=TRUE, rowlabel='',digits=3)

i is the variable for the loop for the years
j is the variable for the loop for the gpa

Right now I get tables with captions that say "1.0" (for example)
whereas I would like them to say "Low GPA Freshmen"
