Hi stata users, 

I used stata2mplus command to convert a small stata file to 
Mplus. However, when I open it in Mplus some of my variables 
have very different descriptives stats (means and std dev). 

I even coded all the .d, .r and .x in my original stata file 
as simple missing values (.), so Mplus can read them as such 
(-.9999), but still I have some variables with wrong values. 

I also formatted the length of variables and set them to no 
more than 6 digits (including decimals). That helped a bit, 
but still a few variables were read incorrrectly. 

Anyone knows how to correct this issue?
