Hello,
I am a very new user of R. I've spent several hours trying to import data, so I feel okay asking the list for help. I had an Excel file, then I turned it into a "csv" file, as instructed by directions. My filename is "x111.csv." I then used the following commands to read this (fairly small) dataset in.

x111 <-read.table(file='x111.csv',
sep="",header=T,
quote="",comment.char="",as.is=T)

I then get the following error message.

Error in file(file, "r") : unable to open connection In addition: Warning message:
cannot open file 'x111.csv', reason 'No such file or directory'

I would imagine I'm not putting my csv file in the right location for R to be able to read it. If that's the case, where should I put it? Or is there something else I need to do to it first? Thanks for your help,
Carl
