How to have columns lined up?

hithit168
 Hi there,

Everytime when I paste My R output in WORD, the columns couldn't line up nicely like they appear in  R console. Is there a way to fix this problem? Thanks for any help!

Select the table, make it Courier. But the isn't really an R  
question ... is it?

Thanks a lot, David.
Uh...this is not really an R question, but I couldn't find answer nowhere...

Questions that relate to how to use editors (and this is especially so  
for Microsoft products) simply do NOT belong on R-help. There must be  
literally thousands of other venues for such questions.

A little more on topic is that there are tools for R to nicely format output.

The simplest is probably the R2wd package which will transfer objects
and text to word, you can send a matrix or data frame to word as a
nicely formatted table or wdVerbatim will send output to word but make
sure that the font is the correct type to make things line up.

If you are going to be doing a lot of this then you should investigate
the variations on Sweave (Sword, knitr, odfWeave, etc.) which allow
you to create a template file with R code and report text, then
process it to replace the R code with its output.
