I suggest you store the file as a comma separated file (.CSV). You can import a .csv file using the read.csv function data<-read.csv("d:\\myfile.csvl")
I suggest you look at the help file for read.csv, i.e. help(read.csv)

  I am a beginner with R.
  I have been trying to import a tab delimited excel file but i get the following error message
  >'C:\Documents and
Settings\stats\Desktop\SUMI\plasma2.txt') Warning message: file 'C:Documents and SettingsstatsDesktopSUMIplasma2.txt' does not exist
 I have understood the programming part but i cannot go ahead unless i have imported the file. I have consulted the R-help archive without success.
  Any help will be appreciated
  Thanks in advance
