I run two sets of CFA models using the same correlation matrix. One is a three factor model, and the other is a two factor model. The number of observations for this correlation matrix is about 10500000. I cannot get AIC, BIC, or sample-size adjusted BIC.In the output, they are shown ********. However, I need them to do model comparison. Is there any way I can get them?
(I guess the problem is the large number of observations. If I used a much smaller size, I can get these fit indexes). Thanks for answering me.

If you save the results, using the RESULTS option of the SAVEDATA command, they will be saved in scientific notation.

By doing what you suggested, I can get the result in a file. However, lots of results/numbers in the file, I couldn't really understand them (which numbers belong to fit indexes??). Is there any thing I can do?

Look at the end of the output. It gives the order of the information in the file.
