You have two options.

Q[, 117:ncol(Q)]

Or using the negation, thus not selecting the first 116 cols.

Q[, -1:-116]

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

The plural of anecdote is not data.

The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.

Dear R users,
sorry for a very basic question. i wanted to ask that if your column are too much in number and you want to select the remaining columns, starting from column number 117. one way is to use usual command
>q[ ,(117:2300)].
is there a way by which i can select the remaining columns starting from column number 117 without using the usual command or without giving the column number of the last column?
more precisely, cant i use something like
>q[ ,(117:remaining columns)]
hope my question was clear.
