We use Mplus to estimate an SEM model. We am receiving an error indicating
that some cases have missing data for the weight variable (this error
message is correct, if you check the data set). We compared descriptive
data across MPLUS & SPSS and the data set is (finally) reading in correctly
- the values match up.

Mpus showed the following message.
*** ERROR
Weight variable has missing value at observation 4.
*** WARNING
Data set contains cases with missing on all variables.
These cases were not included in the analysis.
Number of cases with missing on all variables: 7986

Weight variables cannot have missing values as there is no theory for this.
