Hi, Saroj. You are not doing anything wrong. GDS1082 is unusual in
that it contains no SUBSET tags. I was unaware that such GDS files
existed, so the code didn't deal with this situation. I have corrected
the problem in the development version of GEOquery which should be
available in the next day or so. I will be changing the release version
as well; look for a new version early next week. Thanks for the bug report.
