You need to load the foreign package first.

Subject: [R] read SAS file

Looked at a lot of documentation and listserv postings and still can't solve 
this problem.  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.
