[R] Not getting all data to a text file via write.table

	  ?write.table reveals a second argument "file".  Have you considered 
"write.table(df, 'df.csv')"?  I've imported *.csv files produced by 
"write.table" into Excel many times, so I think this should work for you.

	  By the way, "df" is the density function for the F distribution.  It 
is also the degrees of freedom argument for Student's t distribution 
functions, etc.  It is therefore considered poor style to use "df" as 
the name of a data.frame or some other object.
