Hi,

I'm new to both SEM and Onyx as my question probably shows.

An SEM model that I've specified with Onyx has the symbol with an exclamation mark displayed, and the associated message tells me that the model is overspecified.

Onyx FAQs notes, "If you obtain this error, you have most likely included more freely estimated parameters in your model than there are observed statistics. Try to fix freely estimated parameters or remove paths."

However, Onyx's Estimate Summary reads:

Observed Statistics : 65.0

estimated Parameters : 24

Restricted Degrees of Freedom: 41.0

Why do I get the error warning when the number of freely estimated parameters (24) is less than the number of observed statistics (65)?
