What is the working directory, getwd() ?

That's where R will look.  give read.xport the full path to your file? 
YOu might also look at sas.get from the Hmisc package.

I need to get a SAS dataset into R. I've converted it to an .xpt file and when I try to read it I get:> > > read.xport("cft2008R")> Error: could not find function "read.xport"> >> > Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm running SAS 9.1.3 on an UNIX box. I ftp'd the file over to my C:\Program Files\R\R-2.8.0\ directory on my local machine running WinXP. Suggestions appreciated.> ___________________
