Hi Birgit

No, you do not have to write all 85 vectors in the first line. I just did not fully appreciate what you were trying to do.

You could use the "get" option as was suggested somewhere else.

So, if your vectors are V1 to V2 (i.e. 85) say, something like:

V1<-c(1,2,3)
V2<-c(5,2,7)

...

V<-paste("V", 1:2, sep="")

```for ( i in 1:length(V) ) {
print(range (get(V[i]), na.rm = TRUE))
```

}

Hello John,

I tried this code. But I got only the ranges of V1 and V2 what is easily understandable.
Do I have to write in all 85 vectors in the first line?

V<-list(a=c(V1), b=c(V2))

for ( i in 1:85 ) {          # 2 vectors (replace with 85 ...)
+     print(range (V[i], na.rm = TRUE))
+ }

sapply(1:85, function(i) eval(parse(text=paste("range(V", i, ", na.rm=T)", sep=""))))

But thanks anyway.

Greetings

Birgit
