[R] How to see data for a package built under Windows

I have followed the instructions on how to build a Windows package and everything seems to work EXCEPT that I can't see the data files that I have loaded into the data directory. I have placed the appropriate data in the data directory (as in the instructions). There are 3 data sets, which I can see when I use the command in R. Details below. I have searched everywhere to try to fix this, but no luck. Help please.

> data(package='DiagMeta')

a windows pops up containing the following (Mowatt has a comment because I have documented it)

Data sets in package 'DiagMeta':

Mowatt                  Mowatt meta analysis

But when I type
>Mowatt it is not found.

The output I get at the command prompt when creating the zip file gives
