Bit of an R novice
I am struggling to open a number of libraries and data files. was working fine yesterday -
this is the error message

Welcome in the community.
So you mean that yesterday you could work with your code
and after restarting the same machine this morning it would not work?
I assume that you did no major changes on your machine in between ?

Can you share the code you are using and the result of the statement


I did install a new package to analyse some data (PCAtools) and it would not open the data file i was trying to use. I then went back to what i was using yesterday and that would not work either.

Anyway i uninstalled and reinstalled R and Rstudio and it now works

Quite simular to power-off, power-on:
it often helps :blush:
