How to install data from a downloaded PDF into RStudio.

I am trying to install downloaded data for a homework assignment in RStudio and I am getting the message "File is binary rather than text so cannot be opened by the source editor." I am unsure if I am even trying to install it right. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The terminology you are using is a little confusing, you can't "install" a pdf file, maybe you mean you are trying to read data from a pdf? To help us help you, could you please prepare a reproducible example (reprex) illustrating your issue? Please have a look at this guide, to see how to create one:

I am new to R so I am not sure if install is the correct word. I know I need to "run" it in RStudio. I hope the below is what you are asking for:

[1] "C:\Users\justi\Downloads\Assignment 1 data (SPSS).sav"

2: In read.table(path, encoding = encoding, header = header, sep = sep, :

3: In scan(file = file, what = what, sep = sep, quote = quote, dec = dec, :

4: 'default.stringsAsFactors' is deprecated.
Use 'stringsAsFactors = FALSE' instead.

I appears that you are trying to import an SPSS file.
