Problem reading data from txt file

Please someone help with this error. when I try loading this data in Rstudio I get this error "DUPLICATE ROW NAMES"

my_data<-read.delim("Aviation.txt")

Can you provide a sample of your Aviation.txt file? This is very likely related to the structure of your data.

Sorry for the late reply, I forgot about this thread. In case you haven't solved it yourself, as Nir says you just have to specify the sep argument.

my_data <- read.delim("Aviation.txt", sep = "|")

I think you should try specify the delimiter rather than use the default
