If cat is giving you an error try print(attr <- ...etc...)

Hope this helps,

> Hi Eric,Thanks for the explanation. Is there a way to save the results automatically after the analysis gets over?. As I recently lost the results, because I didn't save the results. I don't want to run the sink or save command after the analysis is over rather run the command for saving the file before starting to run the analysis, so the file gets saved automatically after the script has finished running Priya

Just give the command sink("C://....etc")2. to complete the saving to the file you must give a second sink command with no argument:  sink()So your code would be (pseudo-code, not actual code) sink( "filename" )do something that prints output which will be captured by sinksink() HTH,Eric
