Liviu,

Thanks for your attention and help!

Sorry for attached csv file, I didn't read R-Help Posting guide careful. Another R-helper thaught me use de dput() function, and this output are in email's end.

Your correction in my code works pretty well!! Now I can understand a little more how the R "think"! Thanks a lot!

Also thanks for the suggetion to use sessionInfo(). I will do that on next questions to list.

All best, and thanks very much again,

Raoni

The dput() of data is:

structure(list(Data = structure(c(1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 3L, 3L, 3L, 3L, 3L, 3L, 3L, 4L, 4L, 4L, 4L, 4L, 5L, 5L, 5L), .Label = c("2011-02-04", "2011-02-05",

"2011-02-07", "2011-02-08", "2011-02-09", "2011-02-10", "2011-02-11",

5L, 1L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 5L, 5L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 5L, 1L, 2L, 5L, 1L, 5L,
