# Re: [O] statistics with R, convert the result into an org table

```I don't think it is possible without a step in the middle, because
"Min.   :2.0000" is all one string (in a cell in a matrix).```
```
#+begin_src R :results output :var qual=qual :colnames yes
s <- summary(qual)
s[1]
#+end_src

#+RESULTS:
: [1] "Min.   :2.000  "

```
You would have to split each cell into two parts by splitting on the colon. I think extract from tidyr [1] might do the job.

```Hi

I use structure like this

Statistics with R

#+tblname: qual
| 8.3 | 1.4 |
| 7.3 | 5.6 |
|   2 | 1.3 |
| 5.7 | 9.3 |
| 5.3 | 5.9 |
|   4 |     |
| 6.9 |     |
#+begin_src R :results output :var qual=qual
summary(qual)
#+end_src

And obtain

#+RESULTS:
:        V1              V2
:  Min.   :2.000   Min.   :1.3
:  1st Qu.:4.650   1st Qu.:1.4
:  Median :5.700   Median :5.6
:  Mean   :5.643   Mean   :4.7
:  3rd Qu.:7.100   3rd Qu.:5.9
:  Max.   :8.300   Max.   :9.3
:                  NA's   :2.0

Is there a way to have the result already translated into an org table
resulting in

| V1      |       |         |  V2 |   |
| Min.    | 2.000 | Min.    | 1.3 |   |
| 1st Qu. | 4.650 | 1st Qu. | 1.4 |   |
| Median  | 5.700 | Median  | 5.6 |   |
| Mean    | 5.643 | Mean    | 4.7 |   |
| 3rd Qu. | 7.100 | 3rd Qu. | 5.9 |   |
| Max.    | 8.300 | Max.    | 9.3 |   |
