Dear list,

I am trying to sample from a list of integers 1:10, but need to exclude one of them. The one to be excluded is a variable called "number" and can take values 1:10. The line below does not work, but shows what I am trying to do. Would somebody be able to help me with the syntax ?

anglenumber=sample(1:10, exclude = "number",size=1,replace=TRUE)

Thank you very much for a hint.

Regards,

Juliane
