```Hi Elisa,

If the total number of elements in each of the list elements/372 are integer values, then
set.seed(24)
l1<-lapply(c(4,5,8,10),function(i) as.data.frame(matrix(sample(1:50,40,replace=TRUE),ncol=i)))
lapply(l1,function(x) matrix(as.vector(as.matrix(x)),nrow=5))

lapply(mls,function(x) matrix(as.vector(as.matrix(x)),nrow=372))
A.K.

Actually, you will see that 465 elements are there in 12 columns. which means total number of elements are 465*12=5580. now if you accommodate these number of elements in 372 rows, R should automatically make 5580/372=15 columns.

i hope i am clear.
thanks once again

> So, you selected the nrows based on the list element with the least number of rows.  But, you also have list elements with 465 rows, i.e. not a multiple of 372 row.  IN that case, wouldn't it end up with less number of rows than 372.  Same applies for the last matrix in all the list elements.

> thanks for replying. i actually want to convert each data frame to a matrix. so in total i want to have 16 matrices. i want to split them is such a way that each matrix should have 372 rows and the number of column which could accommodate the data.
> like in first data frame there are 1085 elements in each 12 columns. so, there are 13020 elements. i want to convert it into the matrix on the basis of 372 rows,  automatically columns will be 35.
