Hi

I'm totally new to OpenMx so please excuse me if I'm not posting at the right place or asking a stupid question:-(

I just got thourgh the nice User Guide but could not find examples on how to build a SEM model:-( Is it in the user guide under another name? My model would be:
Measurement model:
5 indic to latent exo C.Bez (with var to 1)
3 indic to latent exo C.HE (with var to 1)
1 observed endogenous variable C.Satis (with var to 1)

Structural model:
C.Bez and C.HE explain C.Satis

Would someone be kind enough to indicate me how I could specify such model or direct to the right documentation? Thanks a lot!!!

I join the RAM model I used for package sem (think it is the right model:-))

Keep in touch as you work through it.
