Since you have provided absolutely no information about the data you  
have or the problem you are trying to solve, you cannot expect anyone  
here to tell you what the one right function will be. You need to  
_do_the_search_yourself_ and determine which (if any) of the 36 hits  
it brings up are relevant to your (as yet incredibly vague) problem.  
Further hits are possible if you click the r-help buttons which will  
them bring up all the questions for the years indicated
