It`s probably an easy question, but couldn`t figure it out.

I`ve defined a function like:

rmse<-function (x){

dquared<-x^2

sum1<-sum(x^2)

rmse<-sqrt((1/length(x))*sum1)

rmse}

My problem is, that I have NA Values in x and the above function returns NA.

I`m looking for a way to use "na.rm=TRUE" like in for instance mean(x,na.rm=TRUE).

Does anybody know how to do this?

Thank you very much.

Mauro
