Well, dat is still unknown to us.

i is unknown to us now. Your code is still *not* reproducible (note that
I forgot what happened a week ago). Please post your whole reproducible
code! We do not remember all things for weeks....
> corrs[j]<-cbind(c[j,1:5], dat.cor)
That cannnot work: corrs is a vector (given you said nothing else and
given your indexing). You cannot assign cbind(c[j,1:5], dat.cor) which
is a matrix of 6 columns at least, into a single element of a vector
corrs[j].
If your dat.cor and you c are numeric values (rather than more complex
objects that I believe they are intended to be from your former
message), then you caould assign into rows of a matrix corrs by
initialiszing it before and assigning rowwise by
corrs[j,] <- cbind(c[j,1:5], dat.cor)
But since you do not know this basic assigment trick, I really doubt you
know how complex your objects really are...
It might make sense to learn a bit more of R and reading some R
introducing material as well as asking a local expert.
