Hi
The result of a summary(as.factor(x)) (see example below) call is sorted according to the factor level. How can I get the result not sorted but in the original order of the levels in x?

> test <- c(120402, 120402, 120402, 1323, 1323,200393, 200393, 200393,
200393, 200393)
> summary(as.factor(test))

   1323 120402 200393

      2 3 5

I need:
120402 1323 200393

      3 2 5

thanks for a hint

christoph
