Data into R from Excel csv file
xd<-read.csv("court.dates1.txt",as.is=T, header = F)

> str(xd)

'data.frame': 5 obs. of 1 variable:
 $ V1: chr "6/6" "5/27" "5/16" "5/2" ...

>xd

 V1
1 6/6
2 5/27
3 5/16
4 5/2
5 4/29

cdates <- as.Date(xd, format = " %m/ %d")

Error in as.Date.default(xd, format = " %m/ %d") :   do not know how to convert 'xd' to class "Date"

Suggestions appreciated,

Don
