1 and 2 are not valid identifiers in R, so you need to surround them with backticks to make them valid, the same as quoting a string:

switch(Stst, `1` = print("NO"), `2` = print("YES"))

Dear members,
                             The following is my code:

> Stst <- 2
> switch(Stst, 1 = print("NO"), 2 = print("YES"))
Error: unexpected '=' in "switch(Stst, 1 ="

Why isn't it printing "YES" on to the console?

many thanks in advance.

Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,
