To David W.'s point about lack of a suitable reprex ("reproducible example"), Bill's solution seems to be for only one station. Here is a reprex and modification that I think does what was requested for multiple stations, again using base R and data frames, not dplyr and tibbles. First the reprex with **two** stations:> d <- data.frame( station = rep(c("one","two"),c(5,4)),from = c(60,61,71,72,76,60,65,82,83), to = c(60,70,71,76,83,64, 81, 82,83), record = c("A","B","C","B","D","B","B","D","E"))> dstation from to record 1 one 60 60 A 2 one 61 70 B 3 one 71 71 C 4 one 72 76 B 5 one 76 83 D 6 two 60 64 B 7 two 65 81 B 8 two 82 82 D 9 two 83 83 E ## Now the conversion code using base R, especially by():> out <- by(d, d$station, function(x) with(x, {+ i <- to - from +1 + data.frame(YEAR =sequence(i) -1 +rep(from,i), RECORD =rep(record,i)) + }))> out <- data.frame(station rep(names(out),sapply(out,nrow)),do.call(rbind,out), row.names = NULL)> outstation YEAR RECORD 1 one 60 A 2 one 61 B 3 one 62 B 4 one 63 B 5 one 64 B 6 one 65 B 7 one 66 B 8 one 67 B 9 one 68 B 10 one 69 B 11 one 70 B 12 one 71 C 13 one 72 B 14 one 73 B 15 one 74 B 16 one 75 B 17 one 76 B 18 one 76 D 19 one 77 D 20 one 78 D 21 one 79 D 22 one 80 D 23 one 81 D 24 one 82 D 25 one 83 D 26 two 60 B 27 two 61 B 28 two 62 B 29 two 63 B 30 two 64 B 31 two 65 B 32 two 66 B 33 two 67 B 34 two 68 B 35 two 69 B 36 two 70 B 37 two 71 B 38 two 72 B 39 two 73 B 40 two 74 B 41 two 75 B 42 two 76 B 43 two 77 B 44 two 78 B 45 two 79 B 46 two 80 B 47 two 81 B 48 two 82 D 49 two 83 E Cheers, Bert Bert Gunter "The trouble with having an open mind is that people keep coming along and sticking things into it." -- Opus (aka Berkeley Breathed in his "Bloom County" comic strip ) On Sat, Nov 25, 2017 at 4:49 PM, William Dunlap via R-help < r-help at r-project.org> wrote:> dplyr may have something for this, but in base R I think the following does > what you want.
