I am trying to use RankProd to compare microarray data generated by me to some publicly available data. Therefore I am using RPadvance for 2 origins and 2 classes.

The command I ran: 

RP.adv.out <- RPadvance(test,, test.origin, num.perm= 100, gene.names= test.gnames, rand=123)

where: "test" was read from a tab delimited .txt file containing both the datasets combined (common genes only) using the following commands

 > test <- read.table("test_combined.txt", header= TRUE, sep="\t", stringsAsFactors=FALSE)

> rownames(test) <- test[,1]

> test <- test[,-1]

The typeof(test) is "double" and class(test) is "matrix". These data attributes are the SAME as the example data matrix provided with RankProd called arab. But somehow I feel that the error message (shown below) is due to mismatch of the expected vs actual data type.
Just fyi, the other input variables -, test.origin have the same number of entries as the number of columns, and are numeric vectors.

As I ran the RP.adv.out command, the output/error was as follows:

" The data is from  2 different origins 
Rank Product analysis for two-class case 
Starting  100 permutations... 
Computing pfp... 
Error in `row.names<`(`*tmp*`, value = value) : 
  invalid 'row.names' length"

I have been stuck with this for a really long time, so any help will be greatly appreciated.
