More specifically,  it shows the following when I typed traceback():

3: stop(sprintf(ngettext(N, "replacement has %d row, data has %d",
       "replacement has %d rows, data has %d"), N, nrows), domain = NA)
2: `$<-.data.frame`(`*tmp*`, "Z", value = numeric(0))
1: `$<-`(`*tmp*`, "Z", value = numeric(0))

I don't know what is the problem, as it works in the Console panel but not
in the top left panel. Thanks for your help.
