# Hmisc describe output when export as latex file giving API error 2

I am new to latex and I am trying to output the R results from describe( ) function through latex( ).

A .tex file is being created but it is not giving me a pdf output

df = data.frame(A = rnorm(n = 100, 0,1)) %>% dplyr::mutate(B = 2*A+ runif(n = 100,-0.05,0.05))
# call latex( )
f = 'sample.tex'
df_latext = Hmisc::latex(describe(df,descript = 'Sample Description'), file = f)


When I run df_latext in the R console it is giving me the following error:

MiKTeX Problem Report

Also, I tried running the .tex file created but its giving the following error saying Environment spacing undefined.:

! LaTeX Error: Environment spacing undefined.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.1 \begin{spacing}{0.7}
?
