1. The embedded blanks often cause problems.  Try the 8.3 version of the 
filepath.  To find the 8.3 name, open an MSDOS cmd window and enter
"dir /x 'C:\\Raoul\\R"
There will be a line something like
RMAPS_~1  R Maps_UK Maps_Test

Use the value that appears in the RMAPS_~1 position.

2. try loading rcom at the R prompt before starting RExcel from the
Excel window.


If that works you will need to modify your Rprofile to make that happen 

Further questions on RExcel should be sent to the rcom mailing list

If you need further help, please include the information from RExcel:
In Excel, click on RExcel > About RExcel > Copy to Clipboard > OK
Then move to your email and paste that information.
