Trouble using convert() in RTAQ package

I'm having a little trouble early on using the convert() function in RTAQ to convert .csv taq intraday trade data into an .RData format. I type this:

> from <- "2012-02-01"
> to <- "2012-02-29"

> ###convert data to .RData format
> convert(from, to, datasource = "/home/taylor/Desktop/trading",
ticker = "AAPL", dir = F, extention = "csv", header = F)


and get this error:

[1] "no trades for stock AAPL"
There were 42 warnings (use warnings() to see them)
> warnings()
Warning messages:
1: In file(file, "rt") :
No such file or directory


or i type this:

> convert(from, to, datasource = "/home/taylor/Desktop/trading/aapl
quotes = F, ticker = "AAPL", dir = F, extention = "csv", header = F)


and get this error

Error in setwd(datasource) : cannot change working directory


My hunch is that the raw data isn't in the anticipated format. In the documentation for RTAQ it mentions that the raw trade data has 9 columns (with no sample picture), however my data has 15 columns. An example row:

20120201,40000,793,AAPL,P,T...,100,457,,00,1,N,,AAPL,


The columns are Date, Time (HHMMSS), MS, Symbol, Exchange, Sale Condition, Trade Volume, Trade Price, Trade Stop Stock Indicator, Trade Correction Indicator, Trade Sequence Number, Source of Trade, Trade Reporting Facility, Symbol Root, and Symbol Suffix, respectively. If I have to change the format of the raw data, which columns do i drop/combine?

Thanks in advance for any help.

RTAQ::convert expects each day's data to be in its own folder, in a file named "[ticker]_trades.csv". Your file, aapl2012-02.csv, isn't in its own folder and isn't named appropriately.
It would probably be easier to read your data with read.csv. Then create an xts object using the numerical data you want, and include the categorical data by creating a numerical mapping to the categorical data (e.g. Y/N -> 1/0). Then save that as a .RData file.
