[R] Issue with var command in stats package

Am using R version 3.2.4 in a fully updated version of Windows 7 and the most current versions of coorplot, FactoMineR and factoextra to support multiple correspondence analysis. However, today, a line of code that worked just fine on one set of data produced an error message on a different set of data.

Specifically, when I ran:

corrplot(var$contrib, is.corr = FALSE)

I received the following message:

> corrplot(var$contrib, is.corr = FALSE)
Error in var$contrib : object of type 'closure' is not subsettable

Can you please tell me what this error message means and roughly what I might need to do to correct it? If necessary, I can provide the original data files.

Many thanks for your kind help.

Very Respectfully,
