Is it possible to use the graphing features in Mplus in monte carlo studies? For example, I want to present a bar graph for the Monte Carlo estimates of the population coefficients under different conditions. For instance, I want to present a bar graph for a link between X and Y as it tries to recover a population estimate across 1000 replications. How can I do this?
The PLOT command is not available with the MONTECARLO command. You can save your Monte Carlo results using the RESULTS option of the MONTECARLO command and graph them using another program.

When I have tried to save the results in SPSS format, I have not been able to read the data directly into the program. Is there a way to reformat the data? That is, the manual says that it is saved in E15.8 format. Can we manipulate how the data are saved and/or what is saved using this command? If so, would you give me an example to follow from? Thanks
