I am fairly new to Rstudio, and need to use it for coming university projects. I am trying to import datasets but receive errors as soon as i open Rstudio and try to import datasets.
This is the error message taht appers in the console when launching Rstudio:
Error in file.exists(templateYaml) :
file name conversion problem -- name too long?
When I'm trying to import datasets i receive the following error:
Error in file(file, "rt") :
invalid input 'C:/Users/My_name/Desktop/R/Loyalty Program Data_Sample.xlsx'
I believe the problem stems from my name, which contains a special character; namely the Norwegian letter Æ/æ which is being printed as � in the R console.
I have attempted to change the my local name stored on computer, but rstudio still returns the same error, even after removing the special character from my name and reinstalling R studio.
Has anyone encountered such a problem before? help would be much appreciated
