Subject: [R] concatenating a string to a column

Hi All,

Suppose I want to concatenate a zero to all the values to a column called
period in data frame A. I want to do the following but the following
command actually deletes the entire column altogether.


Any help would be appreciated.

p.s. sorry about the corporate notice.
