This function defaults to excluding the first column of the input data.frame, assuming that it contains a descriptive variable, but this can be overridden by specifying the columns to be totaled in the ... argument. Non-numeric columns are converted to character class and have a user-specified fill character inserted in the totals row.


adorn_totals(dat, where = "row", fill = "-", na.rm = TRUE, name = "Total", ...)



An input data.frame with at least one numeric column. If given a list of data.frames, this function will apply itself to each data.frame in the list (designed for 3-way tabyl lists).


One of "row", "col", or c("row", "col")


If there are non-numeric columns, what should fill the bottom row of those columns? If a string, relevant columns will be coerced to character. If NA then column types are preserved.


Should missing values (including NaN) be omitted from the calculations?


Name of the totals row and/or column. If both are created, and name is a single string, that name is applied to both. If both are created and name is a vector of length 2, the first element of the vector will be used as the row name (in column 1), and the second element will be used as the totals column name. Defaults to "Total".


Columns to total. This takes a tidyselect specification. By default, all numeric columns (besides the initial column, if numeric) are included in the totals, but this allows you to manually specify which columns should be included, for use on a data.frame that does not result from a call to tabyl.


A data.frame augmented with a totals row, column, or both. The data.frame is now also of class tabyl and stores information about the attached totals and underlying data in the tabyl attributes.
