RE: Selecting Lists Without Null Results


Gregory,

Use UnsameQ or =!=.

Length[Select[runsTable, (#[[14]]=!= Null) &]]

	I must be doing something wrong as usual.  How come I can select
list with elements that have the word Null in them as a result of a
computation, but I cannot exclude them?

I have an array called runsTable with 179 rows, and there are five
rows with Null in column 14.

So,

	Length[Select[runsTable, #[[14]] == Null &]

returns 5.

But

	Length[Select[runsTable, (#[[14]]¬ Null) &]]

returns 0 when it should return 174, that is, 179 minus 5.

	Am I using the NOT operator incorrectly?

	Regards,

		Gregory
