Dear R users,
I am trying to fit a Cox model such as:

Surv(time,event) ~ X1+X1:X2

Surv(time,event) ~ X1*X2 -X2, 

This code is working with coxph but not with cph (nor with psm), and the error message is:

Error in if (!length(fname) || !any(fname == zname)) { : 
        missing value where TRUE/FALSE is required

Any idea about the cause of the problem and how to manage it within the Design library?

Thanks a lot for your help.
