Your email is severely damaged because you sent it using HTML format. Please adjust the settings in your email software to use only plain text when sending to this list so we can see what you see.

While you are at it you should read about making your examples reproducible [1]... it may seem like a pain but you are likely to get better assistance if you make the extra effort before pressing the send button.

(Also, RStudio is a fine way to use R, but many people here use the R interpreter just fine without it so ask all you like about R here but don't assume we are all looking at the same screen you are. If you find you need to refer to RStudio to ask your question then you may be going off-topic. Your current question seems on topic though.)

I don't see a problem with your approach such as I can guess where you are going with it, but your code is messed up and your error does not look like it goes with that code so I have no idea where your actual problem is.
