I am attempting to run a model with clustered data (children within a family) using the cluster option and type = complex. When I run the model with the cluster option and the type=complex I get an error saying I have zero observations. When I remove the cluster option and type=complex then it works just fine.

What am I doing wrong?

Here is the error:
The number of observations is 0. Check your data and format statement.

Open the data file in the Mplus Editor. You will see the invalid character at the beginning. Delete that character and resave the data.
