R 2.7.2
PPC Mac OS X 10.4.11
library mice 1.13.1

I try to use mice for multivariate data imputation. My variables are numeric, factors, count data, ordered factors.

First I created a vector for the methods to use with each variable

      ImpMethMice<-c(rep("logreg", 62), rep("polyreg",1), rep("norm",12), rep("polyreg",12))

next step was

     Test<-mice(df, im=ImpMethMice)

I got the following error message:

iter imp variable
  1 1 variablenameFehler in impute.logreg(c(2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 2L, 1L, 2L, :
  Dimensionen [Produkt 119] passen nicht zur Länge des Objektes [122] Zusätzlich: Es gab 50 oder mehr Warnungen (Anzeige der ersten 50 mit warnings())

 1 1 variablenameError in impute.logreg(c(2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 2L, 1L, 2L, :
  dimensions [product 119] don`t match lenght of object [122] Additional: 50 or more warnings (show first 50 with warnings())


  1. In any(predictorMatrix[j, ]) ... : wandle Argument des Typs 'double' nach boolesch
  2. In any(predictorMatrix[j, ]) ... : transform argument of type 'double' to boolesch

I would be very happy if somebody could help me to fix this. Thanks in advance.
