Hi Katerina,
Your example data didn't make it through to the list, but it seems that 
what you want to do is to read that file into a data frame (see 
read.csv) and then pass that data frame to the ppx function in spatstat. 
Read the help page for ppx to see how this is done, I think that all you 
need is the data frame and a vector of data types in the "ccord.type" 
argument. It looks like you should only pass those columns of the data 
frame that are spatial, temporal or local coordinates, and marks, so 
make sure that you know how to specify a subset of columns (e.g. 
df[,c(2,4,5,6)]) if you have other information in the data frame.
