Hi, I am trying to read a text file located in following paths. I am getting
error if I try to read from long directory..  But if I place the file right
under C, It runs fine. Could anyone tell me how to read table from following
directory path ? 

data1 <-read.table("C:\\Documents and Settings Administrator\\My
Documents\\My Dropbox\\data.txt", sep="\t", header=TRUE) 
Error in file(file, "rt") : cannot open the connection 
In addition: Warning message: 
In file(file, "rt") : 
  cannot open file 'C:\Documents and Settings Administrator\My Documents\My
Dropbox\data.txt': No such file or directory 
> data1 <-read.table("C:\\data.txt",sep="\t",header=TRUE)
