What you sent looks like a total mess on my terminal window.
But, yes, R can make tables of all sorts.  Usually xtab is quite
good, but there are other table making functions, such as those
in the Hmisc and gregmisc packages.

Almost 3 years ago I was keeping Windows on my computer because I
was using Systat - similar to SPSS - for data analysis.  Then I
discovered R and soon got rid of Windows forever.  The beginning
section of "Notes on R for psychology...", in my page below (and
which we plan to revise soon) is written for people who are
making the particular sort of transition I made.
