Thanks a lot that works fine!

Next problem, if I would have my own package, and the file "test.csv" would be located in the data directory

How to use the function data to get

 > data(test)

resulting in:

 > test

    %y-%m-%d VALUE
1 1999-01-01   100
2 2000-12-31   999


Again Thanks in advance Diethelm Wuertz
