Reproducible Research: Export Regression Table to MS Word

April 20, 2012

Here’s a quick tip for anyone wishing to export results, say a regression table, from R to MS Word:


# install packages required
# install software RCOM, RDCOMClient
# (I had to restart the R-Session after the above step to get it work)


# Regression:
mod <- lm(Sepal.Length ~ Species, data = iris)
regr_tab <- data.frame(summary(mod)$coefficients)
colnames(regr_tab) <- colnames(summary(mod)$coefficients)
regr_tab[ ,4] <- ifelse(regr_tab[ ,4] < .001, "< 0.001",
ifelse(regr_tab[ ,4] < .01, "< 0.01",
round(regr_tab[ ,4], 3)))

# print table to doc in word-default format:
wdTable(format(regr_tab), autoformat = 1)

wdSave("Regression.doc") # save file
wdQuit() # close file

ps: Also check odfWeave
– this also seems to be a very useful resource!
