(1) Please don't post in html. (Read the posting guide.)
(2) Where does the function att_gt() come from? It's not in base R so
it is presumably from a contributed package. Don't expect your
readers/helpers to be telepathic.
(3) Given that it's from a contributed package, you should in the first
instance contact the maintainer of the package rather than this list.
Only if you get no response from the maintainer should you appeal to
the list. You can find the email address of the maintainer by typing
(4) From the error message I would guess that there is a bug in the
package; it apparently uses defunct syntax in that it tries to apply
var() to factors. It seems that this used to be allowed, but is no
longer. But that's just a guess; I know nothing about what att_gt() is
designed to do.
