Hi
It is preferable to echo your posts to r-help, you usually get more
answers and some definitelly superb to mine.
It is also better to start a new mail if your question has nothing to do
with original subject

That is not unusual. However customizing yourself with R environment,
syntax and basic data manipulation can save you a lot of headache.
Just make a hardcopy of 100 pages R-intro and use it in small portions
before you fall asleep. In few days you will become a quite experienced
user.
