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...

Re: Run time error '-2147417848 (80010108)':

Unfortunately I don't know exactly what is causing this problem as it is occurring in the graph component, which is provided by a third party. It may be that this component is conflicting with something else installed on your computer, but this would be hard to track down. One thing to try would be ...

Re: how to change labels manually in mlwin

You can set the category labels from the names window (Data Manipulation->Names). If you highlight a categorical variable and the click the "view" button in the categories section then you will get a window containing a list of categories defined for that variable. If you edit the name her...

Re: Input dataset contains double precision data...

To avoid this message you need to convert your variables to have a lower precision before sending them to MLwiN. If this is possible without losing accuracy then the Stata command http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?compress will perform the conversion for you, otherwise you will need to reduce the precis...

Re: Modelling Count Data (example do-file) - mismatch error

I have just tried this example here and it appears to work fine for me. Could you check that your version of Stata and runmlwin are up to date? If you still have problems could you run the command: set trace on before running the example and then post the output just before the error occurs? Could y...

Re: MLwiN fails to open after changing the default worksheet

It may be that the trial wrapper isn't passing on the command to MLwiN. You can test this with the command option "mlwin /help". If it doesn't display a list of possible options then this is the case. An alternative way to reset the size is to copy the following into a text file called &qu...

Re: Error code: r(-1073740777);

If it doesn't work with the examples either, but does work if you give it the Stata data sets directly then it's possible that MLwiN does not have access to where Stata is storing the temporary data set that it passes to MLwiN. To check this look at the path it is using (the part after RSTA and befo...

Re: Error code: r(-1073740777);

Assuming that you have tried some of the examples in the runmlwin help and they worked then there is no reason that the networked Stata should behave differently with the standalone MLwiN for this model. If the problem is occurring when MLwiN is being run then you might try the following: 1) Add vie...
