Not sure if it's cool to flog other software here ... But I use Ultra-edit

Cheap ... Easy to use ... And has text editing functions that save A LOT of

Just my two cents.

Erik, Roger, others:

Why I use excel: the ability to concatenate and 'drag' formulas. I use it
because it is what I know. Apparently, excel is frowned upon, what should I
be using? I don't know how else to create many very similar lines of R code.

Thanks again,
