Off course, same problem: You're referring to an object y in your
command. But you have no object named y in your workspace, so R can't
continue.
Look at the help files:
?plotCI
You'll see you have to put quotation marks around y, like William
showed you. Next to that, please also define from which package you
use a plot. plotCI can be found in the gplots package and in the
plotrix package.
Cheers
Joris
Either you define all input for the function before you run it, or you
use the double quotes like William showed
