```X = {{1, 2, 3}, {8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}};

Select[X, ! FreeQ[#, NA] &]

{{8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}}

Cases[X, _?(! FreeQ[#, NA] &)]

{{8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}}

DeleteCases[X, _?(FreeQ[#, NA] &)]

{{8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}}

X /. _List?(FreeQ[#, NA] &) :> Sequence[]

{{8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}}

Hello everyone,

Suppose I have the list

X = {{1, 2, 3}, {8, NA, 20}, {-7, 9, NA}},

where NA is a string, although it need not be.  How can I use Select
to pull out all lists in X where NA appears in any element?  In this
example, I want to pull out the second and third list.

Regards,

Gregory
