Re: Standardizing coefficients?

There is no built-in function for doing this. Our recommended method for this is to carry out the analysis on standardised variables. This is not recommended for binary variables however (including dummies for categorical variables with more than two categories), as there is no meaningful interpreta...

Re: MVs & error message 'line too long'

I have now been able to replicate the error by reducing the size of my worksheet before running the example multinomial model, so it does indeed appear to be caused by the size of the data set. The incorrect error message should be fixed in the next release of MLwiN.

Re: MVs & error message 'line too long'

I have a feeling that the size of the data set may be what is causing the problem. As part of the MNOM command, where is it getting stuck, MLwiN expands the data to approximately number of response categories times the size. This may in your case be larger than the currently set MLwiN worksheet size...

Re: MVs & error message 'line too long'

Thanks for providing the macro. I cannot see anything obviously wrong with it. Would it be possible for you to email George or myself an example data set and do file that demonstrates the problem so that we can investigate further?

Re: MVs & error message 'line too long'

Would it be possible to add the viewmacro option to your runmlwin command and then post the contents of the generated script, as I would like to check that there is nothing obviously wrong there?

Re: comma instead of dot

This may just be a display issue, if it doesn't crash or give any error messages then you should get the same results regardless of the display format. One thing it might be worth watching is the commands generated in the "command interface" window. If numbers sent to these commands appear...

Re: MVs & error message 'line too long'

Could you also please let us know whether you still get the "line too long" message after removing the cases with missing values?

Re: work matrix too small

This kind of message is often a symptom that the current worksheet size is too small. Instructions for increasing this can be found at:

Re: runtime error 9 when deselecting exclusion criteria

This appears to be a bug in the software. As a workaround if you enter the command:

Code: Select all

EXCL 0
in the command interface window it should have the required effect.

Re: run-time error 9 when trying lattice plots

Thank you for reporting this bug, it will be fixed in the next released version of MLwiN. In the mean time I think the only workaround would be to manually generate row and column codes (with a maximum of five unique values in each) where each combination corresponds with one of your current codes a...
