Hi John,

I had the same problem yesterday and solved it like following:

seq(ISOdate(Year,Month,Day,Hour), by="hour", length=24*365)

for example: seq(ISOdate(2005,1,1,0), by="hour", length=8760)

Regards,
Solveig

Hi John,

?Date leads you to (among other things) ?seq.Date.

Something like this should work:

time<-rep(1:24, 365)
dates<-seq(as.Date("01012005",format="%d%m%Y"),as.Date("31122005",format="%d%m%Y"),by=1) TimeFrame<-data.frame(time)
TimeFrame$dates<-rep(dates,each=24)

Regards,
Gustaf

I don't have R on this machine to try it but it looks good to me.  I had 
even got as far as seq() but completely missed the use of "each". 

Thanks very much.
