I am using R 2.1.1 in a Windows Xp environment.
I need to import a large database from Microsoft SQL
I am currently using the sqlQuery function/command.
This works, but I sometimes run out of memory if my
database is too big, or it take quite a long time for
the data to import into R.
Is there a better way to bring a large SQL database
IS there an efficient way to convert the data into R
format prior to bringing it into R? (E.g. directly
from Microsoft SQL?)
