Here is my data.  I tried table but it doesn't do what I want it to do
when it graphs.  I want a count of the types (R for one graph and A for
another) by hour grouped by year.  Hope that helps.

I think you want to use table or xtabs to get a frequency table, and use
barchart on the result. Hard to say more without an example.
