# [R] HELP relevel INTERCEPT-COMPARISONS

```Dear colleagues,

How can I do to "relevel" the intercept?

I need that the treatment "Db" be the intercept, and have p-values for the comparisons with the others treatments.

I used the function "relevel" but it did not work out to have what I want.

Xavier
