Hi,
thank you very much for your comments and examples, which are very helpful! [I saw that the summary.formula (lib. Hmisc) has an option "cross", which might be useful too...]

Alan, I agree with you: at the workplace we have a Windows-XP network with MS-Office, so I have to cope with this; I will test your Excel-suggestion. At home I use Windows-XP with Open Office, but I begin to work with Linux too.
