as the title suggests, my question is very basic. I have trouble understanding how Realcom handles its data input. I own neither Stata nor MLwiN, so I installed the MATLAB runtime environment (2012b) and Realcom as a standalone program. My computer is a Win7 64bit.
The GUI starts up fine, but I cannot read in my data. As soon as I selected the data file, the console gives a few errors (see below). If I continue clicking any button in the GUI, new windows open but I cannot select any variables (e.g., if I try to set the grouping indicator). I created several small dataset with a .dat-file ending and tab-separated entries. I tried minimal examples varying the heading and values, to no effect. All I receive are these error messages:
Code: Select all
Error using read (line 55) Error: Unexpected MATLAB expression. Error in gui_opendata (line 19) Error in gui_2levmixresp>pushbutton8_OpenData_Callback (line 142) Error in gui_mainfcn (line 96) Error in gui_2levmixresp (line 46) Error in @(hObject,eventdata)gui_2levmixresp('pushbutton8_OpenData_Callback',hObject,eventdata,guidata(hObject)) Error while evaluating uicontrol Callback
I'd be very happy if someone could direct me to where I made a mistake. I apologize if this is a trivial question. Thanks in advance!
