Re: [R] Get the names of the columns in a tserie

      Have you tried 'str(X)' on the 'X' object that 'read.ts' created for you? If you've done that and still can't solve your problem, I suggest you review the "Introduction to R" manual, available as the first option on the left from the "html" file you get from 'help.start()'. If that still does not answer your question, I suggest you review the 'zoo' vignette. For more information about how to access that, I suggest you try
"http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/Rhelp02a/archive/67006.html" (which was the first of 35 hits that I got just now in response to 'RSiteSearch("graves zoo vignette")').

      If you'd like further help from this listserve, please provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code, as suggested in the posting guide "www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html". Your example was not self contained. Also, R is case sensitive, so "Tseries" is different from "tseries". I believe you can increase your chances of getting more and more useful replies quicker by thinking about what someone would have to know to be able to answer your question. In particular, a very short, self contained example sometimes invites people who may never have used the 'tseries' package before to experiment with your example. By doing so, they get a very quick introduction to 'tseries', and with only a little luck, you get a quick answer to your question. It's "win-win", and I've learned a lot doing just that. Without a simple, self-contained example, I know it will likely take me a lot longer to even understand what you are asking, and I will likely not be very confident that I even understand your question even if I attempt an answer.

      Hope this helps.
