I'm working on a simulation study that I can't seem to figure out. I am developing my data in EQS (so I can easily develop skew and kurtosis in the data) and I need to run the program in Mplus. However, everytime that I use the program in 11.6 I get an error message. The message is telling me that I it cannot find the data as specified in the data line.

In my EQS program, I have the data set to save as separate files, and I when I investigate the storage of that data, I find the data. However, Mplus cannot seem to find the data. Here a few sanpshots of my programs.

In my simulation section, I have the following for the save commands and the data paths.

Save = sep;
data = c:\n650.dat;

In the data lines, I have the following:

Data: File is c:\n650.dat;
Type = Montecarlo;

As I said before, I get an error in the data command line that says: "the file specified for the FILE option cannot be found. Check that this file exists: c:\n650.dat."

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
