Hello statlist

I am fairly new to Stata and completely new to the sem() function.

I have previously used MPlus, where it is common to have data files in a format like this:

79.75 0.97 81.96 109.16
 14.18 0.58 54.24 10.40
 1
 0.34 1
 0.59 0.39 1
 0.38 0.13 0.29 1

where we have a row vector for the means of each variable, a row for their standard deviations, a lower triangular matrix for correlations, and the number of observations is input separately.

Is there a way to get Stata to handle this kind of input without having the simulate the data myself ?

Thanks
Robert Long
