Hello,
I am new at using R and I am trying to import data from microarray
experiments and analyze the data using the MAANOVA package and also
bioconductor. I have searched this lists email archive and could not find
the solution to my problem so hopefully members of this group can help me.
OS=windowsXP
R 1.6.2
My Problem:
It seems that MS excel is adding little boxes at the end of each cell when
I save the file as tab delimited. Is there any way to let R know by sep
command that these little boxes really mean a tab is present? I have had
success using comma delimited format, but it seems that one of the programs
I am using is designed to recognize tabs.
Another question: Is there a way to stop MS excel (XP version) from
placing these hidden boxes after each of the cells in a row and really
place a tab?
Could you please reply back to my email address because I am not a member
of this list.

Thank You,
