Hi All,

I have a data with 15 columns. the first 10 column are dependent(y’s) variables and the following 5 an columns are the independent variables(x’s) ( MY DATA HAS A HEADER WITH THE NAME OF THE VAIABLES). I need to apply linear regression y=a+bx where I need x to be one of the independent variable and y to be one of the dependent variable, but for each x I have to repeat the model for all 5 independent variable one at a time .

Also each x is a categorical variable with 4 categories so I have to introduce three variables for each x

	New Variable 1	New Variable 2	New Variable 3
Category 1	0	0	0
Category 2	1	0	0
Category 3	0	1	0
Category 4	0	0	1

I want R to print out the summary and the analysis of variance for each model.

How can this done in R? I want to use some loop that loops over the independent variables for each x ?Also , I am not sure how to deal with the problem of each x being a categorical variable and I have to create these new variables for each x?

I hope that someone can help. I really Appreciate it.
