In a clean session I executed this:

load("/home/david/Downloads/WVS RData file/WVS.RData")


#[1] "final.ord"

# num [1:82992, 1:74] 2 2 1 2 2 1 2 1 2 2 ...
#- attr(*, "dimnames")=List of 2
#..$ : NULL

# ..$ : chr [1:74] "v12" "v13" "v14" "v15" ...

So it appears to be a matrix with 74 columns and 82,992 rows.

You have repeatedly posted in HTML. Gmail makes it easy to post in palin 
text if you are using their client. Please read the Posting Guide and I 
would suggest also reading and working through the examples in a good 
introductory tutorial on Rhelp. The "Introduction to R" that ships with 
all copies of R should have illustrated using both ls() and str().
