I just downloading and installed RAndFriends from rcom.univie.ac.at, which installs R, rcom, rscproxy, statconnDCOM, and RExcel (I canceled the installation when I got to RExcel). I order to run your code, I had to modify it as follows: myR = CreateCOMObject["StatConnectorSrv.StatConnector"] You example illustrates a number of methods, such as SetSymbol, Evaluate, etc. I was able to infer myR@Close[] (and then use ReleaseCOMObject[myR]). Do know where I might find the full set of methods? --Mark
