I am trying to export data in R to a csv file, and as much simple as I try to do it, I always get the same error message. Example:
I create a simple data vector to export
x <- c(1,3,4,3,5,7,5,8,2,5,7)
error in file(file ifelse (append a w )) cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning message: In file(file, ifelse(append, "a", "w")) :
cannot open file 'whatever.csv': Permission denied
First part is to check the working directory and ensure that you have write access to that directory. You can check this with
getwd(). I can reproduce your error by trying to write to a directory which is read only.
To set the working directory to something else with read access you can type
Once you have write access the
write.csv(x,file='whatever.csv') should work.
