Hello R folk I have an xpt file which I have been trying to open into R in R studio
On the net I found guidance which says that I need packages Hmisc and SASxport which I have successfully loaded. I had also found some code which says that this would allow me to read the xpt file into R: library(SASxport) data(Alfalfa) lookup.xport("test.xpt") Alfalfa<-read.xport("test.xpt") I have set the directory correctly as far as I am aware, but when I tried to run this code I got the following error messages: > lookup.xport("test.xpt") Error in lookup.xport.inner(file) : file not in SAS transfer format > Alfalfa<-read.xport("test.xpt") Error in read.xport("test.xpt") : The specified file does not start with a SAS xport file header! I neither know what the file being not in SAS transfer format means, nor what not starting with an SAS xport file header means either... If anyone can explain how I can read this xpt file into R I'd be v grateful Thanks Nick Wray [[alternative HTML version deleted]] ______________________________________________ Rfirstname.lastname@example.org mailing list -- To UNSUBSCRIBE and more, see https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help PLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
