Dear Jim,

Maybe u want this,

> subset(dat2, time1 %in% dat2$v1 & time2 %in% dat2$v1)

           v1 v2

2  2006-05-09 7065.0
3  2006-05-04 3622.5
5  2006-07-14 3532.5
7  2006-05-12 6480.0
8  2006-05-17 4612.5
15 2006-07-05 4837.5
16 2006-07-06 3352.5
18 2006-07-24 6772.5
20 2006-07-18 5625.0

Warning message:
In time1 %in% dat2$v1 & time2 %in% dat2$v1 :   longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length

However, it looks the length of time1 and time2 is different.
