How to read in a data file in AMOS Engine

  • 1.  How to read in a data file in AMOS Engine

    Posted Tue December 07, 2021 03:49 AM

    I just got AMOS 26 - it doesn't seem to read in covariance excel files the way old syntax would. Below is what has worked historically - what do I need to change?

    Sem.BeginGroup("C:\Users\\Documents\Client Files\Company\SPG_cov.xls","data")

    I get a message saying the file can not be opened for reading - yet it worked in earlier versions of AMOS. Urgently in need of help here.
