Hi:

   I have a data file in the following format. The first three digits stand for the ID of a respondent such as 402, 403. Different respondents may have the same ID. Followed the ID are 298 single digit number ranging from 1 to 5. My question is how to read this data file into R. I tried "scan" and "read" but they do not work because the numbers in the file are not separated. Any suggestions? Thank you!
