Hi, I am wondering if Mplus can read multiple inputation data sets that I have prepared by using SPSS? Thank you.

Yes. See TYPE=IMPUTATION in the DATA command. Mplus can also create imputed data sets.

Thank you Dr. Linda K. Muthen. I tried but got the following error message:

file is d:\data2.dat;
file is d:\data3.dat;
file is d:\data4.dat;
file is d:\data5.dat;
type is imputation;
!format is 6f1.0;
variable: names are
vim1-vim6;
usevariables are
vim1-vim4;
categorical are vim1-vim4;
analysis: type = mean;
model:
vic by vim1-vim4;
output:
sampstat
stand
mod (4);

*** ERROR in Data command
There are fewer NOBSERVATIONS entries than groups in the analysis.


Please help again. Thank you.
