I sent Val a longer reply but for anyone else here, please note Val was copying my OUTPUT with continuation lines starting with plus so of course that has issues!
The naked code to use was this:
dat %>%
group_by(Year, Sex) %>%
summarize( M = mean(wt, na.rm=TRUE)) %>%
pivot_wider(names_from = Sex, values_from = M) %>%
as.data.frame %>%
round(1)

Thank you Avi,
One question, I am getting this error from this script
> dat %>%
+ + group_by(Year, Sex) %>%
+ + summarize( M = mean(wt, na.rm=TRUE)) %>%
+ + pivot_wider(names_from = Sex, values_from = M) %>%
+ + as.data.frame %>%
+ + round(1)
Error in group_by(Year, Sex) : object 'Year' not found Why I am getting this?
