Thanks for all your (ronggui, *Uwe Ligges , **sosman) *help. I got it through using source. I know R has gone through all those lines, but I didn't get results of what I would if I use drop-down menu and click "run all" under edit after I open a script file? Basically, nothing hasspens except that no error message. My codes are very simple,

help(lm)
library(foreign)
mydta <-read.dta('h:/data/binlfp2.dta')
mydta[1:5,]

Are the log results saved somewhere else automatically? Thanks again.
