Hi!

Have the following factors with the following levels.
tmp$norm

[1] rank rank rank rank rank log log log rank sqrt sqrt sqrt log log rank [16] rank rank sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt log log log log sqrt none none none none [31] none none none none sqrt none

Levels: log none rank sqrt

I would like to add an ordering to the levels. none<sqrt<log<rank

I tried with

tmp$norm <-factor(tmp$norm,labels = c("none","sqrt","log","rank"),ordered=T)

*>tmp$norm
*

[1] log log log log log none none none log rank rank rank none none log [16] log log rank rank rank rank none none none none rank sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt [31] sqrt sqrt sqrt sqrt rank sqrt

Levels: none < sqrt < log < rank

But this is not what I would like to have because the command not only superimposes an ordering but also changes the factors!
