[R] multiple plot in odfWeave

Hello R users,

I found the odfWeave package to create an odf document. It seems to be a very nice tool.
So i tried to used it to create a report with multiple plot:

I create an odt file with some code inside: I connect to a mysql database
I get a list of projects
foreach project I would like to make a plot (a map exactly)

then in a R console I use the odfweave (inFile, outFile) function.

When I try this, with only one program without the loop on the program names, it
draw a map on my odt file, but when i a m doing the loop it doesn't work.

When i try to launch the plot (using the loop) in R console directly, without odfweave, it also works.

Do you know if it is possible to make successive plot in odfWeave document?

Thank you for your help,


Here the code:

My odt file: test2.odt

<<loadData, results = hide, echo = FALSE>>=


<<Connection, echo = FALSE, fig = TRUE>>=


drv <- dbDriver("MySQL")
con <- dbConnect(drv, user="lamilhat", password="******", dbname="Aquagenome", host="mymachine.toulouse.inra.fr")


Liste des projets:

<<carte2, echo = FALSE, results= verbatim, fig = TRUE>>=

lp <- dbSendQuery(con, "SELECT nom FROM projets") projets <- fetch(lp)
for (i in 1:nbr)

    myquery=paste("SELECT s.longitude, s.latitude, o.orgashort FROM organisme o JOIN scientist s ON o.codeorga=s.codeorga JOIN partenaire p ON p.codescientist=s.codescientist JOIN projets ON projets.codeproj=p.codeproj WHERE projets.nom LIKE \"",monprojet,"\" ORDER BY s.longitude", sep="")

    rs <- dbSendQuery(con, myquery )
    df <- fetch(rs)


    map(database="world", xlim=c(-15,40),ylim=c(27,71), fill=TRUE, col="#FFFFCC")

    points(df$longitude,df$latitude, col="red", pch=16)                                                  

spread.labels(df$longitude,df$latitude,df$orgashort,0,bg="#CCFFFF", border=TRUE, cex=0.8, xpad=0.5, ypad=0.8, font=6) }


Then in the R console:

>library (odfWeave)
>inFile <- "/home/lamilhat/AQUAGENOME/PRESENTATION/RAPPORTS/test_2.odt"
>outFile <-


>imageDefs <- getImageDefs()
>imageDefs$dispWidth <- 7
>imageDefs$dispHeight <- 6

>odfWeave(inFile, outFile)
