Hi R-helpers,

I have a dataframe (called data) with 100 columns, the columns of which are named with integers ranging from 1900 to 1999.

I wish to extract those columns which names are >=1950 and <=1970.

I tried:

data2<-subset(data,select=(names(data)>=1950 & names(data)<=1970))

but that doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Thanks! Mark
