I am using a for loop to read in multiple csv files and naming the datasets import1, import2, etc. For example:
assign(paste("import",i,sep=""), read.csv(files[i], header=FALSE))
However, I now want to rename the variables in each dataset. I have tried the following:
names(as.name(paste("import",i,sep=""))) <- c("xxxx", "yyyy")
But get the error "target of assignment expands to non-language object". (I need to change the name of variables in each dataset within the loop as the variable names need to be different in each dataset).
Any suggestions on how to do this would be much appreciated.
