Change rows names in the first column of a tibble

Dear all,

I would like to replace 1,2,3,4,5,6 in the first column of this tibble by the following characters :

1->FR15038
2->FR15039
3->FR15043
4->FR15045
5->FR15046
6->FR15049

2020_04_25_17_21_11_RStudio

Does anyone have an idea on how to do this ? The tibble is called "Diff".

Many thanks again for your help

those numbers are not 'in' your tibble. they are just part of the pretty print function that reports which number row you are looking at.
but it sounds like you want to add a character column at the start containing the names of the other columns. I suppose that makes sense so long as your data starts out with square dimensions.

library(tidyverse)
(myiris<-iris[1:4,1:4])
# Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width
# 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2
# 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2
# 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2
# 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2
(myiris$names_col <- names(myiris))
# [1] "Sepal.Length" "Sepal.Width"  "Petal.Length" "Petal.Width" 

(myiris<- select(myiris,
                names_col, everything()))
# names_col    Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width
# Sepal.Length          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2
# Sepal.Width          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2
# Petal.Length          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2
# Petal.Width          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2

@nirgrahamuk, do you know by chance how I could change the header "names_col" by "code_station" ? Thanks again !

@nirgrahamuk, just found a solution !

colnames(Diff)
Diff <- Diff %>% rename(code_station = names_col) 
Diff

Thanks again !
