A year or so ago I ran 64bit R on Mac PPC and saved various workspaces

Now am running 64bit R on Intel 2x3.2 QuadCore and MacOS 10.5.5

I load up the old workspaces
and I enter

> write.exprs(ABeset_gcrma, file="ABeset_gcrma081028orig.txt")
Where ABeset_gcrma is an old file

and I get
Error in function (classes, fdef, mtable)  :
unable to find an inherited method for function "write.exprs", for signature

And I enter
> exprs2excel(ABeset_gcrma, file="ABeset_gcrma081028v2.csv")

And I get
Error: could not find function "exprs2excel"

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you
