Hi All.

I'm new to Mplus and having a problem that *should* be simple to solve. I'd like to perform an EFA. I've input a covariance matrix and it looks like EFA expects a correlation matrix. Is there a way to get a correlation matrix from a covariance matrix within Mplus?

I thought that there might be a way for you to input the covariance matrix and run a type=general with SAMPSTAT requested to get the correlation matrix, but it looks like only the covariance matrix is printed in SAMPLE STATISTICS output. This is the only potential trick I could come up with.
