Please reply to the list, not to me personally.

When I want to import an Excel file, I usually save it as a tab-delimited text file and use read.delim to import it:  

my.dataframe <- read.delim("file.name.txt", header=TRUE, sep="\t")

See ?read.delim for further details. There are many other options, I'm sure, but this is simple and flexible and does not require any additional packages.

Good luck.

        The best way for entering data in R is by importing an existing data file (text, Excel etc). This will reduce time and potential data entry errors.

        Please read Section 7 of the "Introduction to R" manual for a detailed discussion of available options. The manuals are available on your system (Help menu in the R Console for Windows) or through the R web site.

                utils is a base package and should be already installed in a functional R

                system.                 

		You can try
		sessionInfo()
		
		to verify that it is loaded.
