I'm using a simple glm in which the dependent variable may have missing data
(coded 'NA') as usual. Both the default na.action (na.omit) and explicit
'na.action=na.omit' do not seem to ignore the missing data as I expect,
generating an error to that effect (NA passed to routine). I encounter the same
problem in classic Mac and Windows98 versions, but S works alright.

What is the source/solution to this problem?

Thanks Ralph
