I am new in Mplus and learning from scratch. could somebody explain me what does it mean when the error message, after running the model is:

One or more variables have a variance greater than the maximum allowed of 1000000.
Check your data and format statement or rescale the variable(s) using the DEFINE command.

The DEFINE command as I understand is to create/transform variables, I do not wish to transform any of my variables.
In my model I do have 12 variables from which only 3 are constant. The rest are dummies.

would this be the reason of the error message? How to solve it?

thank you
