Cavan - the message I sent to r-help
The packages I load are foreign and SPSSDDI and survey - survey won't
be used, however, until we're actually trying to calculate the
confidence intervals in R
Thanks for taking time out to help with this
I have been trying to read an SPSS file into R using
read.spss ("C:/Documents and Settings/Roderick Harrison/My
Documents/RWORK/ihisdat.sav", use.value.labels = TRUE, to.data.frame =
FALSE, max.value.labels = 500, trim.factor.names = FALSE, trim_values =
TRUE, reencode = NA, use.missings = to.data.frame)
Each time (at least 5 or 6 by now) I get the following Microsoft error
message and the R-Console crashes.
R for Windows GUI front-end has encountered a problem and needs to
close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
I would greatly appreciate help with this as we need to use R to
estimate confidence intervals for NHIS data, and our deliverable is due
Thanks in advance.
