Dear Group,

Why does write.csv modify the date format when it write to a file.

I have the following variable Param_Dat:

structure(list(Last_Successful_Run = structure(1L, .Label = "30/10/2010",
class = "factor")), .Names = "Last_Successful_Run", class = "data.frame",
row.names = c(NA, 

When I do:

The format of the info in the file is:

I want to retain the dd/mm/YYYY format ...

Please advise.

Thanks R-Helpers. Yes, this is a silly question and it will not be repeated!
