1. Please do not shout.
2. Please read the posting guide.
3. Please use a sensible subject.
4. Please read ?read.csv
5. You might want to check if the format of that csv files are really 
identical and  check if the column names are strange (including comments 
or separators). If it still does not work, send us the first few lines 
of that file. We cannot look at it otherwise!
