Dear Aimin,

Your question about Excel comes up rather often on the list
and answers can be found in the archives in the "R Data 
Import/Export" PDF file installed with R. In short, you can
read CSV files through read.csv or you can get read
directly from Excel spreadsheets through the excellent
RODBC package. Documentation suitable for R beginners is
installed by default (look for the PDF file "An 
Introduction to R") and there is much additional material
available on the CRAN website. Also, try ?histogram for
more detailed information.
