Thank you a lot!!! That was fantastic! It worked perfectly!!!

Hi Laura,

try using the functions try() and inherits() to "catch" any errors in the loop:

summaryList <- list()
for (i in 1:35)
    tempSummary <- try(summary(resultList[[i]]), silent = TRUE)
    if (inherits(tempSummary, "try-error"))
        summaryList[[i]] <- NA
    } else {
        summaryList[[i]] <- tempSummary

I hope you can make it work?! :-)
