I apologize if this is a simple question, but when I run my path analysis I have been getting "unknown option:" followed by one of my variables (not a command). When I removed said dichotomous variable, my analysis came back with the error "unknown option:" followed by a different variable (this time a ratio variable). Is this a common issue? I checked, and all my missing cases are -9999 so I don't think that's the issue.

Sounds like a simple syntax error, perhaps involving a missing semi colon. If you can't find it, send output to Support with your license number.

I get the following error over and over again. I am trying to convert my Spss file into .csv, it might be due to that but i could not find what is wrong.

"ERROR in VARIABLE command
Unknown option:"

It gives the name of a variable, and if I delete that one, for the next variable it says the same thing.

Can you help me with this problem? Thank you.
