I assume you did this:
If so, then you should have data stored in the .GlobalEnv in an object
You could access it like this
And you could rename the data with a syntactically valid name like this:
assign("BBD", get("BBD-B.TO"), pos=.GlobalEnv)
#assign(make.names("BBD-B.TO"), get("BBD-B.TO"), pos=.GlobalEnv)
You have at least 2 other options.
You can use auto.assign=FALSE in the getSymbols call and assign the
results yourself like this:
BBD <- getSymbols("BBD-B.TO", src='yahoo', auto.assign=FALSE)
Or, you can use setSymbolLookup to associate the name yahoo uses with
a valid name in R
setSymbolLookup("BBD", list(src='yahoo', name='BBD-B.TO'))
