Dear Dr. Zeileis,
Here is the solution that I finally came up with, I hope you agree with
it. From your suggestion, I saw that the problem was the creation of the
vector. It needed to be numeric. So I calculate the difftime from each date
to a reference date (1990/01/01 00:00:00). The units is "hours". I obtain a
vector of difference numbers. Then I add these numbers, transformed into
seconds, to the reference date.
Thank you so much for your help!
Best regards,
Jue
