Hi Mplus community,
I am trying to run a simple factor model with maximum liklihood estimation. I keep getting this error message (below) OR an error message #59:

*** ERROR in DATA command
The file specified for the FILE option cannot be found. Check that this
file exists: assignment3data.txt

My syntax is:
TITLE:
Assignment 3 Model 1
DATA:
FILE IS assignment3data.txt;
TYPE IS MEANS STD CORR;
NOBS IS 222;
VARIABLE:
NAMES ARE V1-V9;
MODEL:
F1 BY V1-V9;
F1@1;
OUTPUT:
SAMPSTAT STANDARDIZED;

Many thanks in advance!
Sam

If the data set is not in the directory where you are working, use a full path. Search for assignment3data.txt to make sure you have not misspelled the data set name. If you can't figure it out, send the output, data set, and your license number to support@statmodel.com.
