I assume 'indirectory1' is a string with the filename  you've defined elsewhere?  What do you expect to get from size(indirectory1,2) ?  That should just give you the number of characters in that string. Don't think that will do anything to tell you how many header lines are in the data . if that number is too big, it would explain why the function is skipping most of your data.
