You can enter data directly into R, and you can read data from a wide range of sources. In this chapter I will demonstrate R’s data editor as well as reading and writing data in text, Excel, SAS, SPSS and ODBC formats. For other topics, especially regarding relational databases, see the R Data Import/Export manual [46]. If you are reading data that contain dates or times, see Sect. 10.21.
