Multilevel Multinomial ERROR!!!

Evening all,

I'm a relatively novice MLwiN user so apologies if my query is easily resolved or if there have been lots of previous posts.

I'm trying to fit a multilevel multinomial model of couple HIV status on three levels, the individual, the couple, and their district, using data from Lesotho.

However, I haven't been able to fit anything in MLwiN yet because every time I try to fit the model, I get the following messages:

"no non linear component to mixed response model - check group 11"

"no non-linear component to mixed response model - check group 11(offsets 1)"

And yet I've gone Data Manipulation - Groups and found nothing in group 11.

What does this error message usually mean, and would anyone be able to hazard a guess as to why I'm receiving it?

Please see attached pictures for further clarification.

It sounds as if there may be a problem with your model specification. Can you describe how it is currently set up (perhaps with a screen-shot of the equations window)?
