Anyhow, it appears that you have a convergence problem. So the next step is not to try to come up with some correct R^2, but to fix the model. You could try specifing starting values. -- Maarten Ps. -aweights- are very very very rarely the correct weight type. ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
