[R] trouble getting R program to open a data file

	We've written an R program to conduct a series of analyses on a data file
that is a comma separated value file. At one time it worked, but every
since having down loaded the new version of R, I'm getting the following:

Cannot open c:windowsdesktopslope.csv

What I've asked the program to do is to open a datafile using the following: 

DataFile<- 'c:\windows\desktop\slope.csv' 

 So it is clearly stripping the "\" from the path. I've tried using "/" to
no avail. Any suggestions?
