What is the problem that you are trying to solve?

Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

Dear All,

I am new to "R" and search for a solution to exclude cases if a certain

variable contains NA for a case.

Example

No Name Turnover

1 Smith 1500

2 Mayor 200

3 Miller

4 Batic 750

I would like to create a subset excluding case 3 Miller NA.

I tried to following:

new_dataset <- subset(dataset, subset = Turnover != NA)

This does not work. The new_dataset contains all variables but not cases

are left. R responds "Variables with all observations missing".

How could I do it right?

Kind regards

Georg
