Something like the following? AllMAFs <- list() for (i in length(SeparatedGroupsofmealsCombs) { AllMAFs[[i]] <- apply(SeparatedGroupsofmealsCombs[[i]], 2, function(x)maf(tabulate(x+1))) } (untested, of course) Also the solution is a bit generic since I don't know what the output of maf() looks like in your case, and I don't understand why you use tabulate because I would have assumed that's what maf() does - but that's not for me to worry about :-) B.> On Nov 17, 2017, at 7:15 PM, Allaisone 1 <allaisone1 at hotmail.com> wrote: > > > Thanks Boris , this was very helpful but I'm struggling with the last part. > > 1) I combined the first 2 columns :- > > > library(tidyr) > SingleMealsCode <-unite(MyData, MealsCombinations, c(MealA, MealB), remove=FALSE) > SingleMealsCode <- SingleMealsCode[,-2] > > 2) I separated this dataframe into different dataframes based on "MealsCombination" > column so R will recognize each meal combination separately : > > SeparatedGroupsofmealsCombs <- split(SingleMealCode,SingleMealCode$MealsCombinations) > > after investigating the structure of "SeparatedGroupsofmealsCombs" , I can see > a list of different databases, each of which represents a different Meal combinations which is great. > > No, I'm struggling with the last part, how can I run the maf code for all dataframes? > > when I run this code as before :- > > maf <- apply(SeparatedGroupsofmealsCombs, 2, function(x)maf(tabulate(x+1))) > > an error message says : dim(X) must have a positive length .

The first col is codes for Meal A, the second columns is codes for Meal B. The third column is customers IDs where each customer had a combination of meals. Each column of the rest columns contains values 0,1,or 2. The dataset is organised in a way so that the first group of customers had similar meals combinations, this is followed by another group of customers with similar meals combinations but different from the first group and so on.

Although the loop seems to be formulated correctly I wonder why it gives me these errors : -object 'i' not found - unexpected '}' in "}" the desired output is expected to be very large as for each dataframe in the list of dataframes I expect to see maf value for each of the 600 columns! and this is only for for one dataframe in the list .. I have around 150-200 dataframes.. not sure how R will store these results.. but first I need the analysis to be done correctly. The final output has to be something like this :-> mafsforeachcolumns(I,II,...600)foreachcombinationMealsCombinations Cust.ID I II III IV ...... 600 1 33-55 1 0.124 0.10 0.65 0.467 3 5 2 44-66 7 0.134 0.43 0.64 0.479 4 9 . . ~180 dataframes ________________________________ From: Boris Steipe <boris.steipe at utoronto.ca> Sent: 18 November 2017 00:35:16 To: Allaisone 1; R-help Subject: Re: [R] Complicated analysis for huge databases Something like the following?
