Regarding executing function in RMD file

Welcome in the group !

I think that it would help very much if you included a (small) example of the data that you want to use.

Further some suggestions:

  • enclosing your code in three (or four in case of Rmd chunks) backticks makes it better readable
  • indicate more clearly what is the error (if any) that you are encountering.
  • you seem to use a function sort_desc that I do not know. So this is no code that we (I) can run to see what is wrong. Try to create a reprex ! The main points for a reprex: be as clear as possible and make the problem as small as possible. For example I do not think that the fact that this is running in an Rmd environment matters (but of course I may be wrong).
