[R] importing large objects

I was trying to import a very large data table to R using RODBC. By 
large meaning a table of 600 real
numbers and 10000 rows. It failed saying that it reached a memory limit. 
This is extremely weird
because S-Plus can import the same table, and it does this quite fast.

Are there any limitations on objects size in current implementation of R ?
