[R] error message in cox regression cph()

Hi,  

I have been trying to get the cph() function of the Design package to work but get an error message I don't understand:  

Error in if (!length(fname) || !any(fname == zname)) { :

        missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed

I have tried the same for a dummy dataset I made, and than it seems to work fine. However, it doesn't do it for my own data. Does anyone have a clue as to what this message means, whether I have made a mistake somewhere(although it seems ok to me?) and especially how to solve this problem. I know I could have used coxph() instead, but I'd like to predict the outcome on another dataset and coxph() does not allow for interaction terms...  

I hope anyone can help me here. Underneath is the code I used for my data, if it's of any use...  

Thanks, cheers Roel
