I am trying to run model comparing groups, where the factor loadings and intercepts are both freely estimated (to compare to the invariant model where they are constrained equal). However, I receive the following error message.

MODEL:
f1 BY fehome fepres fepol;
f2 BY fechld fepresch;
f3 BY fework fefam fehelp;

MODEL female:
f1 BY fepres fepol;
f2 BY fepresch;
f3 BY fefam fehelp;
[fehome fework fepres fepol fechld fehelp fepresch fefam];



*** ERROR
The following MODEL statements are ignored:
* Statements in Group FEMALE:
[ FEHOME ]
[ FEWORK ]
[ FEPRES ]
[ FEPOL ]
[ FECHLD ]
[ FEHELP ]
[ FEPRESCH ]
[ FEFAM ]


Any suggestions for getting this to run??
Thank you in advance!

I would guess that the variables in brackets are categorical and you should be referring to thresholds not intercepts. If not, please send the output and your license number to support@statmodel.com.

Ah, yes. Thank you!
