Dear All,

I just want to remove “NA” from the levels of a factor. For example:

d<-data.frame(matrix(c("ww","ww","xx","yy","ww","yy","xx","yy","NA"), ncol=3, byrow=TRUE))

> factor(d[, 3], exclude=NA)

[1] xx yy NA
Levels: NA xx yy

But “NA” is still listed in the levels. How can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance.
