This message is a follow up to a previous enquiry where Patrick Connolly 
and Brian Ripley both provided helpful suggestions.

I want to be able to access objects in another subdirectory than that 
where I start R. The startup directory (\\biomass spectrum) currently has 
no objects in it. The other directory (\\opc) has lots of objects. I need to 
see these, so I tried attaching the .Rdata in \\opc\\R-src. Patrick 
suggested that it was called _RData in windows, but it does seem to be 
called .RData. 

> getwd()
[1] "h:\\DATA\\nov99_TAN9913\\biomass spectrum"
> objects()
> setwd("h:\\DATA\\nov99_TAN9913\\opc")
> getwd()
[1] "h:\\DATA\\nov99_TAN9913\\opc"
> objects()
> attach("h:\\DATA\\nov99_TAN9913\\opc\\R-src\\.RData")
> objects()

You can see from this that i am not doing the correct thing to access 
these objects. Can you provide further guidance?

Help will be appreciated.
