[R] write data from function into external table

Dear list,
My apologies if a solution / explanation to this already exists on the list, but it is difficult to assign it to a certain keyword.

test<-c(1:3)
testfct <- function(x) {test[1]<-100}
 test
[1] 1 2 3

 testfct(1)
[1] 1 2 3

Basically, I would like to write data into an external table that the function does not know. Why is this not working / what alternatives exist?

Thanks, Sebastian
