You are trying to index a function.  Possibly you're using brackets 
instead of parentheses when calling it?  E.g.

 > mean(1:2)   # correct
[1] 1.5

 > mean[1:2]   # incorrect
Error in mean[1:2] : object of type 'closure' is not subsettable
If that doesn't help enough, please simplify your problem to a 
self-contained one of a few lines and post it here.  Someone will work 
it out.
