### MLpowsim problem for continuous x random slope model

Posted:

**Sun Aug 05, 2018 4:49 pm**hi Chris and Bill,

I have a problem with MLpowsim for a two level random slope model. the model is similar to the illustration of page 62 the MLpowsim userbook. There is only one continuous x included in the model (random slope). MLpowsim is working with binary X with random slope, but for continuous x (mean= 0, with 0.9= level 1 variance , 0.1= level 2 var), the code ran for 2 seconds and stopped with following message :

Numeric error(s) in calculate command. Affected entries replaced with system missing.

error while obeying batch file analyse.txt at line number 51:

CALC b203=0.600000/b203

Numeric error(s) in calculate command. Affected entries replaced with system missing.

error while obeying batch file analyse.txt at line number 55:

CALC b207=0.600000/b207

Numeric error(s) in calculate command. Affected entries replaced with system missing.

->WSET

if I run a radome intercept only model with continuous X included as fixed effect explanatory, MLpowsim worked very well. just do not know why random slope continuous X not allowed? any help please? I only replace the binary gender with a continuous x in the illustration. my window is window 10 and MLpowsim is the latest version.
