One variable not imputed

I've just run my realcom model but having successfully loaded it into Stata, one variable (logbmi) was not imputed (i.e. when I type 'mi xeq: summarise varx', no imputed values are included).

Not sure where to start - it was definitely listed in my realcom model as a response when I just checked again.

Any ideas about how to troubleshoot this would be welcome.

realcomImpute code below
realcomImpute logbmi zbmi height wc hrate sqrtsds sqrtser sqrtcb qol pcs mcs ph sca sb sqrtparentbmi /*
*/ attendance m.ethnic m.origin m.language o.income m.single o.numinhh o.numcinhh /*
*/ nperprog mean_age age1 sex using nototsc.dat, numresponses(25) /*
*/ cons(cons) level2id(ParticipantID) replace
Many thanks

I would suggest looking at the impvals.txt file that was saved from Realcom-Impute. If the missing variable isn't referenced there then it's probably a Realcom problem, otherwise it's likely to be something wrong with the -realcomImputeLoad- command.

Thanks Chris

I re-ran the Realcom model and for some reason I couldn't replicate the error. Which is good in the end I suppose, but a bit confusing as I didn't change any of the settings.
