fair warning, I am quite new to R coding.
Basically, I am trying to load in a sheet from a xlsx file using the read_excel function from the readxl library (which, from what I've read online, is a standard and reasonably efficient way of doing so).
But it just never finishes loading, with the little red stop sign being up indicating that it is trying to read in the file, but I waited for about 5 minutes and still nothing happened. The sheet is about 3,000 rows and 5 columns, but I then tested with a file which is only 20 rows and 5 columns, and still I had the same issue. I will include some screenshots below, but I am concerned that maybe my computer just has really bad memory?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks heaps.
