Hi Michael,

It is not clear how you read the dataset.  It looks like a dataframe.
df1<- read.table(text='
 names(vec1)<- row.names(df1)
 names(vec1)[vec1%in% 3:5]
#[1] "A2" "A3" "A8" "A9"
#[1] "A2" "A3" "A8" "A9"
names(vec1)[vec1>=3 & vec1<=5]
#[1] "A2" "A3" "A8" "A9"

Hi A.K.,
Sorry for the confusion. The first option worked. I can't give out the actual data. But I can give something similar to its structure. Output from write.csv(myvector,file="copy") is attached. 

A1, A2... represent unique identification codes for individuals. Basically, we are interested in finding individuals who have visited within a certain range. It was easy enough to find those that visited the most and the least, but not somewhere in the middle. Your first option worked and I had tried something similar (I don't remember exactly what) but I must have missed something simple.

>HI Steele,
>Could you provide a reproducible example for Options 2 and 3 that returns character(0)? Better would be use ?dput().  Not sure I understand you correctly.  Did you meant that none of the options worked or except option 1?  Also, comment regarding the practicality is also not clear.
