New To R... Need Help

I installed the xlsx package on rstudio and when I went to run the line, library(xlsx), I got this error:

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘xlsx’:
.onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'xlsx', details:
call: fun(libname, pkgname)
error: Your java version is 14. Need 1.5.0 or higher.

I should also note that I am on Mac (fart* I know) and my version of java is the most recent. Any ideas or help would be appreciated... I am very new to this. Thanks!

Are you sure this is the exact message? It doesn't says rJava instead?

yeah I copy and pasted :confused:

Then maybe only the latest LTS Java version is supported, try installing Java 11

Thanks I'll give it a go

If what you need is to read in excel files, you can also try out another package readxl, which does not depend on java.
