Hi all,
  I have this string "year" and integer 2008 (both are inputs from the user), and I would like to make a variable called "year2008" that will store a vector of numbers. Does anyone know how to do this?

  Also, if the user later input "year" and "2008", how do I treat this as a variable; how can I access the variable year2008 using the string paste("year","2008",sep="")?

Thanks so much!
