Hello,

I get the following message when I attempt to run a CFA

*** ERROR
The number of observations is 0. Check your data and format statement.
Data file: c:\users\3047681\documents\police project\sam&miro\EFAtrueA.dat
*** ERROR
Invalid symbol in data file:
"0" at record #: 1, field #: 1

The strange thing is when I go and check the data on SPSS, the data at record 1 field 1 is "0" not "0".

I don't understand whats going on, does anyone here?

Thanks

Lee

Open the data set in the Mplus Windows Editor. You will see the invalid symbol at the beginning of the data set. Delete it and save the data. This is a problem in the most recent version of SPSS.
