Functions to output tables to a single Word, HTML, or PDF document.

write2word(object, file, ...)

write2pdf(object, file, ...)

write2html(object, file, ...)



An object.


A single character string denoting the filename for the output document.


Additional arguments to be passed to FUN, rmarkdown::render, etc. One popular option is to use quiet = TRUE to suppress the command line output.


object is returned invisibly, and file is written.


To generate the appropriate file type, the write2* functions use one of rmarkdown::word_document, rmarkdown::html_document, and rmarkdown::pdf_document to get the job done. "..." arguments are passed to these functions, too.
