When you open the metafile with something like

win.metafile(filename =, width = 6.5, height = 6.5, pointsize = 12)

Where you have defined the to include the path, you then, of course, execute the R logic to create the file.

BUT, don't forget to close the file to tidy things up. Otherwise the file will be there, but it won't be useable. So your final statement should be

Subject: [R] Windows metafile problem

Hi All:

I'm using win.metafile() to produce windows metafiles.

When I use Word to insert the wmf picture, Word gives an error!

I did my homework in posting this question, and couldn't find a fix.

Any suggestions?
