Hello Dr. Muthen,

I try to model the interaction between two level-one variables (X and M), with M being the moderator, on a level-one DV (Y). This model allows random slope and intercept. is this the right code? Thank you.

Missing = all(999);
Usevariables = x m y inter;
cluster = a1;
within = x m inter;
inter = x * m;
analysis: type = twolevel random;
model: %within%
Jake | y on x; !jake is arbitrary, so are jake1 and jake2
jake1 | y on m;
jake2 | y on inter;
y with jake;
y with jake1;
y with jake2;
output: tech1 tech3;

Looks fine. But you have only 3 WITH statements on Between - there should be 4*3/2 =6.

Thank you Dr. Muthen. Are these the missing WITH statements?

Jake with Jake1;
Jake with Jake2;
Jake1 with Jake2:

Right. But you can simply say

y jake-jake2 with y jake-jake2;
