Hi Linda, I want to find out if in conducting an EFA using MPLUS, two formative scales with seven and six indicators respectively can be included in the model with all the reflective scales (8 of them) at the same time?

Thanks for your expected response.

You can do this if you do EFA via the ESEM model. See Examples 5.24 through 5.27 and pages 575-578 of the Mplus User's Guide.
