    Hi, please tell me about AMOS.
    I changed from AMOS Ver.27 to Ver. 28 and now I can't open the .awv file I made in Ver 27.
    The filename extension of that file has been changed to .AmosP.
    How can I open it?

    Hi @Yuna Inada,

    The Amos Graphics file extension is ".amw".  Neither the extension, nor the file should have changed going from Amos 27.0 to 28.0.  Are you getting an error of some kind?  Perhaps you've moved your Amos Graphics File (*.amw) but not the underlying data file it references?  In that case, simply re-specify the location of the data file and the model should attempt to estimate.

    The ".awv" file extension is not one Amos uses.  Are you sure this file goes with Amos 27.0 or 28.0?
    I found this, but again, it's not an IBM SPSS product.

    The ".AmosP" extension seems familiar, but it does not seem to be one that Amos 27.0 - 29.0 writes.  Amos usually writes an "*.amp" file to the same location as where the "*.amw" is stored.  This is a text file with the underlying Amos user interface settings and model-specific data values.

    I hope this helps!
