You can use readLines() or read.table() depending on the data.

Suppose if your text file contain text, headings or paragraphs, netadata,etc. the you can fetch that data using readLines and mentioning the number of lines and starting line number using skip.

read_table = read.table("C:\\Users\\Cherukuri_Sindhu\\Documents\\sample.txt", skip = 1,nrows = 4)

The above code will fetch 4 rows from 2nd line. similarily use different parameters available to get your table from text document.

read_text = readLines("C:\\Users\\Cherukuri_Sindhu\\Documents\\sample.txt",n = 2)
