```Dear All,

This is to thank everybody for all their answers, I have really learn a lot from the answers.

I was trying to generate cost-effectiveness acceptability curve. The R codes I was referring to were:
========================================
ceac = c()
denom  = length(effectiveness)
for  (n in 1000) {
INB = effectiveness*n - cost
ProbCE = length(subset(INB, INB>=0))/denom
ceac = rbind(ceac, c(n, INB))
}
========================================

Thanks

Frank
