Methods for writing data to Excel sheet

Usage

xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", ...)

# S3 method for current.graphics xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", delete.file = FALSE, ...)

# S3 method for list xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", ...)

# S3 method for matrix xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", row.names = TRUE, col.names = TRUE, ...)

# S3 method for data.frame xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", row.names = TRUE, col.names = TRUE, ...)

# S3 method for default xl.write(r.obj, xl.rng, na = "", row.names = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

r.obj

R object

xl.rng

An object of class COMIDispatch (as used in RDCOMClient package) - reference to Excel range

na

Run this code
# NOT RUN {
xls = xl.get.excel()
xl.workbook.add()
rng = xls[["Activesheet"]]$Cells(1,1)
nxt = xl.write(iris,rng,row.names = TRUE,col.names = TRUE)
rng = rng$Offset(nxt[1] + 1,0)
nxt = xl.write(cars,rng,row.names = TRUE,col.names = TRUE)
rng = rng$Offset(nxt[1] + 1,0)
nxt = xl.write(as.data.frame(Titanic),rng,row.names = TRUE,col.names = TRUE)

data(iris)
data(cars)
data(Titanic)
xl.sheet.add()
rng = xls[["Activesheet"]]$Cells(1,1)
data.sets = list("Iris dataset",iris,
     "Cars dataset",cars,
     "Titanic dataset",as.data.frame(Titanic))
xl.write(data.sets,rng,row.names = TRUE,col.names = TRUE)
