I have a file with 1117 columns and I have the names of these columns but how to give the names to those columns
it is not efficient to write
colnames(data)=c("name1", "name2",.....) because they are 1117 names
@Charles Plessy could you please write your comment here
I do not know what is going wrong with Biostars, I wrote my comment and then it gave me:
Page at /p/236697/ not found!
Anyway, it is now covered by the other comments (read from a file or use paste)
where are the column names? in another file?
yes the are in another file
nms <- readLines("your_file_that_stores_colname_one_at_each_line")
colnames(data) <- nms
Thank you very much :)
What R commands are you using to read your data?
N = 1117;
nms = paste0("Name", 1:N);
colnames(data) = nms;
