Dear all,

I have a list of affymetrix probeset ids from another program and would 
like to use annaffy to extract the corresponding gene names. I am still 
something of a novice at R and am probably doing something silly, but 
found no answer in the package vignette. My script:


dat <- read.table('sign.txt.cdt',header=T)

I was surprisied that so few of the probeset ids got identified by this 
script. WHat am I doing wrong?

THanks Peter
