Assuming you have loaded RpgSQL and sqldf it works for me so there is
likely some configuration in your setup, either with RpgSQL or with
PostgreSQL itself.

[1] id  val
<0 rows> (or 0-length row.names)

If you are going to use your own create statements then you might be
better off using RpgSQL directly rather than sqldf.
