Import CSV file using R

0 votes
I'm attempting to import a csv file into Excel.

However I keep receiving this error message when I use data = read.csv(C:UsersldayzOneDriveDocumentsrating)

"data = read.csv(C:Users)" fails with an unexpected symbol.

The files directory was copied from details, so it should be correct. Is there anything I'm missing here?

If there are quotes ("), by using the code in the OP's post

str(read.csv("devices.csv",sep=",",header = TRUE))
#'data.frame':  2 obs. of  1 variable:
#$ A.B.C.D.E: Factor w/ 2 levels "1,2,3,4,5","6,7,8,9,10": 1 2

We could remove the " with gsub after reading the data with readLines and then use read.table

read.csv(text=gsub('"', '', readLines('devices.csv')), sep=",", header=TRUE)
#  A B C D  E
#1 1 2 3 4  5
#2 6 7 8 9 10

Another option if we are using linux would be to remove quotes with awk and pipe with read.csv

  read.csv(pipe("awk  'gsub(/\"/,\"\",$1)' devices.csv")) 
  #  A B C D  E
  #1 1 2 3 4  5
  #2 6 7 8 9 10
