The subject line says it. I've just tried converting an SAS .xpt file with
> read.xport( 'formats.xpt' )
I get the message
Error in read.xport("formats.xpt") : object 'w' not found
but there's no explanation about what 'w' is or how I should make it known
to R. I certainly wasn't expecting to have to provide such a variable,
unless I've overlooked something in the SASxport documentation.
This is using R version 3.1.0 under Windows 7, and SASxport installed this
morning: version 1.5.0 (2014-07-21).
Any idea what this 'w' is that read.xport wants me to give it?
The .xpt file is confidential, so I can't make it available, and I don't
know exactly what's in it. I suspect, however, that it may contain quite a
bit of text. However, I'm pretty sure that its author used SAS correctly
when generating it. Other files containing purely numeric data from the
same author converted OK, using analogous calls to read.xport .
Googling the error didn't find anything.
