Dear all,

I recently started exploring the metaSEM package and worked my way through some of the examples found online.

However, I am new to R, OpenMx, and metaSEM and have some difficulty with importing my own data.

I would like to import a number of correlation matrices, corresponding sample sizes, and clusters, but I don't know how to structure the input.

Is it possible to input the data using a csv file? If so, how should the file be structured? If not, what is the best way to input a large number of correlation matrices?

In a different post I saw a similar solution for the standardized mean difference and its sampling variance (http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/thread/1521 [2]), but not for correlation matrices.

I hope you can point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Nick
