to clarify, i only need to numerical descriptive stat for WEIGHT. thank you!

You appear to be trying to apply an R function to an Excel file.

First you need to read the Excel file into R and then apply the function. It looks like the functionm descr() is in the * `summarytools`

* package which I do not have installed.

In any case try try something like this:

```
library("readxl")
dat1 <- read_excel("Babies.xlsx")
descr(dat1)
```

or maybe

```
summary(dat1)
```

For general reference you may want to have a look at

thank you for the help, will work on this.
