I'm trying to produce a correlation matrix in REG and then convert the
correlation coefficients to 3 decimals. Could anyone help me out in terms
of the program statements? I tried to run the following program but was
in vain. Could someone help?
I was able to produce a correlation matrix in REG successfully. However,
when I read the matrix with WINWORD, I saw hard return after every 8
10-column fields. I'm going to use the correlation matrix as the input
for LISREL and am wondering if hard return would have any impact on
having LISREL read the matrix appropriately.
