I have suddenly started to experience a bizarre problem, where MPlus will only read half the cases in my data file. I have tried endless different ways of trying to discover why this is happening but nothing seems to work. Any ideas please as it is driving me crazy?!
You would need to send the data and input to email@example.com for me to say for sure. But the most likely cause is that you have blanks in the data and are reading free format. Or that you do not realize that the default is listwise deletion of any case that has a missing value on one or more analysis variables.

I have a problem in reading data file .txt to run an EFA. I think I wrote everything in the correct way, but when I define some categorical variables in the output I see that the program is reading "more" categories than the existing categories.
