Thank you,
I made a mistake in my previous email. What I mean is:

data.new[,"G1"]  <- (data.old[,"XG1"] + data.old[,"YG1"])/2

Does your way have effects on data? or only have effects on those column names?
I tried on my data and get a list of numbers. Can I rearrange the
order of columns of data.frame by your way?
