Re: [R] Appending data to a data.frame and writing a csv

Hi Vincy,
Please read the help file, particularly the part about write.csv and write.csv2 where it says "These wrappers are deliberately inflexible: they are designed to ensure that the correct conventions are used to write a valid file. Attempts to change append, col.names, sep, dec or qmethod are ignored, with a warning."

Use write.table instead.

Best,
Ista

Thus, for each of these 50 simulations, I need to define a data.frame giving me filtered ead, lgd and pd and in teh end write a single file sim_data.csv
