[R] NA command in a 'for' loop

Hi Helen,
Your problem may lie in using row.names=TRUE. I was puzzled when an
extra column kept popping up in the output files. For reading in and
replacing zeros with NAs, this seems to work:
for(mockdata in 1:3) {
mdf<-data.frame(sample(2:20,10),sample(2:20,10),sample(0:1,10,TRUE))
write.table(mdf,file=paste0("threat",mockdata,".txt"),quote=FALSE,
row.names=FALSE,col.names=FALSE)
}
txt.files<-list.files(".",pattern="threat[1-3]")
for(tf in txt.files) {
d<-read.table(tf)
d[,3][d[,3]==0]<-NA
write.table(d,sub("[.]",".tbls.",tf),quote=FALSE,row.names=FALSE)
}

The only one not working is the command that identifies zeros in my datasets and changes them to NAs. But when I look at the output, zeros ("0") are still present. Surprisingly, the functions work fine when I apply them to a single
