haven::write_dta(NULL, path="d.dat")
gives

Error in if (any(bad_labels)) { : missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed

this is confusing and does not help in debugging. An error message along the lines "Error in haven::write_dta: 'data' must be a data.frame, not NULL" would help to find the problem more easily.

Thanks for haven :-)
