I believe my problem is similar to this question but I couldn't solve it. After installing the package readstata13, I run the following code in R and it works fine:

data <- read.dta13("D:/Monash/ETC5860 - Research paper/data/Data_Release/conditionfactors_stress_d06302013.dta")

Then I try to do it from Mathematica but it doesn't work:

Shallow[testdata = 

I get the following:

    Error:could not find function "read.dta13"

Can someone help me fix this? The owner of the aforementioned question said something about not mixing Install[]R with his command but I don't know what that means.

Thanks in advance,

    $\begingroup$ @Szabolcs, I followed your instructions under Setting up RLink but I get the following error message when I type InstallR["RHomeLocation" ->"C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-3.4.1"]: Error: R.DLL version does not match (DLL:3.4.1, expecting:3.3.0) $\endgroup$ Jun 14 '18 at 12:02

  • $\begingroup$ I forgot to REvaluate["library(readstata13)"] in my Mathematica code before REvaluate["read.dta13(...)"]. But Mathematica still doesn't acknowledge the package readstata13. Is there a step that I'm missing after installing a package? Maybe I need to reference the package before using it. $\endgroup$ Jun 23 '18 at 7:21
  • $\begingroup$ @Szabolcs, I ran InstallR["RHomeLocation" -> "C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-3.4.1"] after running InstallR[]. That's why I got the error message. It works fine now. {;^) $\endgroup$ Jun 23 '18 at 7:25
