Use the copy_to() function to create a table in Vantage based on an R data frame. The function takes the provided arguments, and generates a SQL query that creates a table in Vantage.

Example

Start with verifying the content in the R dataset "iris", available in the base R package.

At the prompt, enter iris to receive the following output (first six rows shown here):

   Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width Species
 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2  setosa
 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2  setosa
 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2  setosa
 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2  setosa
 5          5.0         3.6          1.4         0.2  setosa
 6          5.4         3.9          1.7         0.4  setosa
 .......

Enter class(iris) to receive this output:

 [1] "data.frame"

This example uses the copy_to() function to create a table named "iris_flowers" in the "tdapUserDB" database of Vantage. The table contains the same data as the "iris" dataset, and can be manipulated using Vantage commands.

copy_to(con, iris, name="iris_flowers", overwrite=FALSE)
