```HI Elisa,

You also mentioned about more than 100 matrices with 1 column each.
Suppose, if the matrices are named from mat1:mat4 (In your case mat1:mat124)
mat1<-matrix(c(.314,.314,.273,.273,.236,.236,.236,.236,.273,.314,.403,.314),ncol=1)
mat2<-matrix(c(.314,.325,.246,.273,.226,.236,.249,.236,.289,.314,.403,.314),ncol=1)
mat3<-matrix(c(.314,.320,.275,.273,.236,.232,.236,.231,.273,.315,.413,.314),ncol=1)
mat4<-matrix(c(.318,.327,.295,.273,.286,.236,.264,.236,.295,.315,.423,.314),ncol=1)

I am not sure whether you could do it in one step as memory might be an issue here.  You could split this to 2-3 times:
1:25, 24:50, and so on..

Dear Arun,
When i save the matrices in text file there are inverted commas on each date and value like the following
"1991.01.01" "0.314"
"1991.01.02" "0.314"
"1991.01.03" "0.273"
"1991.01.04" "0.273"
"1991.01.05" "0.236"
"1991.01.06" "0.236"
how to eliminate these inverted commas?
1991.01.01 0.314
1991.01.02 0.314
1991.01.03 0.273
1991.01.04 0.273
1991.01.05 0.236
1991.01.06 0.236
thanks

> i also want these 124 matrices to be saved in my computer with the pattern exactly shown above. you can see if a value is in decimal number it is exactly 6 spaces away from the day number in date column. these spaces are subsequently reduced when the values go from decimal to higher.
> Actually it wont be wrong to say the pattren of output text files saved in my computer should stricktly carry all the patterns as given above as i will later on use them in fortran.
