I'm wondering if It's really impossible to use correlation matrix type as input data when I want to use ESEM.

Please let me know how to use ESEM with summary data such as correlation matrix.

Here is my syntax:
DATA: FILE IS "L.txt";
TYPE IS CORRELATION;
NOBSERVATIONS ARE 300;

VARIABLE: NAMES ARE V1-V10;
USEVARIABLES ARE V1-V10;

ANALYSIS: ROWSTANDARDIZATION IS KAISER;
ESTIMATOR IS MLR;

MODEL: F1-F2 BY V1-V10(*1);

ERROR message:
EFA factors are not allowed with summary data.
EFA factors are declared with (*label).

We require individual-level data for ESEM.
