HI Team, 


Need help with the below syntax.


merge.salaries[, name:=paste("nameFirst","nameLast")]. Here merge.salaries
is the data set I have merged. 


There are 2 columns nameFirst and nameLast I need to merge these two into
one and name as name however I can getting an error:


Error in `[.data.frame`(merge.salaries, , `:=`(name, paste("nameFirst",  : 

  could not find function ":="


Please advice. 


Thanks, Shivi
