Hi Andre,

I’m not totally clear what the issue is, but I can help eliminate so=
me of the questions:

The original source of the data before generating the NONMEM-ready dataset i=
s not important. The formatting of the NONMEM-ready dataset is vitally impo=

My guess is that your dataset includes extraneous quotation marks as created=
 by the R command write.csv() (note the dot in the function name). I would g=
uess that if you use write_csv() from the readr library (note the underscore=
 in the function name), it will work because write_csv() does not add extran=
eous quotation marks.

For not being able to find the data, I don’t know how Wings differs f=
rom PsN there, but I’d check that the data file path is correct rela=
tive to the NONMEM control stream. And, I would run PsN from the same direc=
tory as the control stream.
