[R] Output and Word

Others have suggested using R2HTML (which is a good option).

Another option is to use Sweave and specifically the new odfWeave
package for R.  This works on OpenOffice files rather than word files
(but OpenOffice  http://www.openoffice.org/ can inport and export word

The basic idea is to write your report in OpenOffice (or LaTeX or HTML),
but anywhere that you want statisticial output (graphs, tables) you
include instead the R code to produce the table, graph, or whatever.
Run this file through R (using Sweave or odfWeave) and the resulting
file has replaced all the code segments with their output.

The documentation with odfWeave has examples.

Hope this helps,

I have just started to have a look at R. I have used most stats software
packages and can use perl, visual basic etc. I am interested in how well
it handles lots of output e.g. tables or charts. How would you get lots
of output most easily and quickly into a Word document?
