thanks Loris

you are bering so helpful!

So, i have done what you explained, but the RDS package that runs “using or through” R is now just closing each time i open it. I have googled and seen that i need to to the following:

 Tips: The recent updates to the Apple Mac OS (Sierra and High Sierra) have reorganized the ways apps, like RDS Analyst, work. So sometimes RDS Analyst will not be configured correctly and will not start (e.g., bouncing icon or no response to double clicking). Most of these relate to how Java works on the Mac. The first thing to try is to open the Terminal and type in :
R CMD javareconf
This asks R to check on the configuration of Java and try to get in sync with it.
off website:

BUT, when i do enter  R CMD javareconf, i get the following error:
Error: unexpected symbol in "R CMD”

so what should i do now?

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Loris, thank you thank you so much!!!

do you know which CRAN mirror i select? There are loads - all related to various countries..

so appreciate the help

It shouldn't really matter, although I'd choose one that is
geographically close.  Occasionally there can be problems with HTTP
vs. HTTPS, which can lead to spurious errors about a packages not being
available for your version of R.  Because R caches the mirror, if you
run into any issues you might have to exit R and start again.
