Is it possible to test the moderating effect of M (M is a moderators which is subject to influence of N) on the path from X (independent variable) to Y (dependent variable). I think this will be a multilevel moderation on path from X to Y. (X>Y is moderated by N>M). Can you please guide me through the process? 


I don't understand your model. What role exactly does N play? What does "X>Y is moderated by N>M" mean? Why do you say it is multilevel? Please write out the full model in some way. 


HI, I am sorry I did not explain it well. You can see the visual representation of my model following the link http://postimg.org/image/g0ex0qvtr/. The model has 3 IVs (lets say A, B and C) and 1 DV (Z). The paths between IVs and DV is moderated my M and P. Moderator M is further influenced by N (e.g. M can represent 'trust' and N is 'trust determinant'). 


With a continuous moderator such as your M, you create interaction variables (products) in Define. So for instance am = a*m; Apart from that you simply say Z on ac am .... ; M on n; 


I used the DEFINE command but I have an error message 'undefined variable used in transformation'
