          I have not seen a reply to this post, and unfortunately, I'm not smart enough to help you. If you would still like help from this listserve, please provide a terse, reproducible example that someone can in seconds copy from your email into R and presumably get the same error message you report. If you have that, then anyone with interest in glmmPQL can try to help you. Without that, your email must reach someone who has gotten that specific error message from glmmPQL with sufficient regularity that the error message has become solidly recorded in their brains. Moreover, this person must also have the time and interest to reply. Don't gamble on a long shot. Play the odds. > PLEASE do read the posting guide! "www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html".
