Dear Prof. Muthen,

When I do the monte carlo simulation with Mplus, there are 2 questions bother me for a long time.

Q1: can I save the latent variables?
For example,
---------
MONTECARLO:
NAMES ARE R1 R2 R3
NOBSERVATIONS = 500;
NREPS = 500;

REPSAVE=ALL;
SAVE=D:\_INT\MonteCarlo\4T\GData*.dat;

MODEL POPULATION:
R BY R1*1 R2*1.2 R3*1.4;
--------
Then it can only save the obsaved data, R1, R2, R3, but no R. However, I need the valued of latent variable, R in
subsequent analysis. How can I save it(latent variable R) ?

Factor scores for the latent variables cannot be saved.
