I am trying to map column names of a matrix to another data frame and
get values in a different column of data frame

I have a matrix m.

> my.numeric vec <- m[1,]

> my.numeric.vec
a     b     c    d   e    f
2     1     4    9   10  3

##  my data frame = df1

> df1

fileName    type   status
b               N       alive
a               T        dead
d               N       alive
c               T       dead
f               N        alive
e              T        dead

I want to combine as.numeric.vec and df1 and create j with correct
filename and type and numeric value


my.numeric.vec    type
a 2   T
b 1  N
c 4  T
d 9  N
e 10 T
f 3  N

How can I combine my.numeric.vec and df1$type

when I try:

df1[df1$fileName %in% names(my.numeric.vec),2]

I get wrong answer.

thanks in advance.
