I get this error when I try to run my LPA analysis:

*** ERROR
The number of observations is 0. Check your data and format statement.
Data file: C:\Users\user2\Desktop\Mplus\Shell\data\lpa_cpa3.dat
*** ERROR
Invalid symbol in data file:
"1.00" at record #: 1, field #: 1

I have checked in notepad and the first row does not contain variable names; also there is no evidence of my idno (numeric) having any quirky symbols. I have even changed my original idno to a numeric format to no avail. Is there a way to view Mplus data within Mplus? How can I fix this problem? thanks

Open your data set in the Mplus Editor. You will see the invalid symbol at the beginning of the data set. Delete it and save the data.
