Hello,
As for the first question try
scoreset <- lapply(pcl, function(x) x$scores[, 1])
do.call(cbind, scoreset)
As for the second question, you want to know which columns in 'datasets'
have NA's?
colidx <- apply(datasets, 2, function(x) any(is.na(x)))
datasets[, colidx] # These have NA's
For the column numbers you can do
colnums <- which(colidx)
Hope this helps,
Rui Barradas
