[R] lm model exported from R to excel

If you know some basic html language you can jazz up the table headings to
your liking by writing that before the xtable statement.
It save having to muck around in Microsoft to fix it.
If you are going to do a lot of it - a little study of html basics can go

I was changing the headings to what I wanted using html (although not all
the tables were lm summaries) before the major upgrade a year or so ago
Now things are better.

Even a title and comments in html for yourself if not available in xtable
are helpful. I have not used xtable and html since the upgrade as I use

Hi Livia

There are several html packages that ?could also do it

Heres a way with xtable

y = rnorm(100)
x= rnorm(100)+rnorm(100)
mod <- lm(y ~x)

# latex example easy view

# html
ff <- file("lm.htm", "a+")
fchars <-  print(xtable(mod),type = "html")
writeLines(paste(fchars, sep = ""), ff)

You can then bring this into Microsoft as an html file

You may need to fill in some of the arguments in xtable to get the right
border format etc

If you are doing many you can make a function to do things

Hi all
I all. I am wondering whether anybody know how to export an output of an lm
model from R to excel in order to have excel recognize the table that comes
and divide the numbers in the table into columns and rows?
I really hope it is possible? :)
