Random slope with fixed intercept

Greetings, I would like to fit a 2level logistic regression model with one level1 predictor. I would like the slope to be random, but the intercept to be fixed. I think the code below fits a model with random intercept and random slope. By the way, is this code correct for specifying that the intercept has one predictor and the slope does not have any predictors, at level 2? And to my main question: How can I make it so the intercept is predicted by "eap" but is fixed (i.e., no error at level 2)? variable: names are subject t b eap; categorical = t; between = eap; within = b; cluster = subject; analysis: type = twolevel random; model: %within% slope  t on b; %between% t on eap; !t refers to random intercept slope; !no predictors of random slope

Regarding your main question, you use statement on Between t@0; If you don't want t to vary at all on the between level  no even as a function of eap  you simply put it on the WITHIN = list and don't mention it on Between. To answer your first question, yes, the code is correct for what you say.
