Dear all

I use ggplot2 extensively for my plotting routines and rexcel to have the best of two worlds. (RExcel v 1.75 and R (D)Com v. 2.5)

I can run my ggplot functions, such as qplot(...), in scratchpad mode, but not in Macro nor Worksheet functions mode.

I have tried the following in Macro mode:

Call RInterface.RRun("library(ggplot2)") ...

With no output ...

I have tried the following in Worksheet function mode:

if Range(H40:I42) contains:

and Range(H48) contains:


The following call:


Gives me no output

Scratchpad mode

However, right clicking a cell containing: qplot(x=Hours,y=pH,data=ds,facets=Sample~.,geom=""line"",group=Cell) and then selecting "Run R" works like a dream!

I would like to develop an excel based GUI for R-data treatment and plotting, and I would like to use ggplot2 as my plotting engine.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help
