You are asked to follow the posting guide and to provide "commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code".

It is hard to guess what you actually did and to provide advice if you do not do this.

The best I can suggest is that you review

         2.1 Variations on read.table

in

         R Data Import/Export

and be sure to attend to the sections on quoting and commments, which issues often give rise to problems such as you allude to.
