First, in the indicator view should be some variables. You do not have any variables (items) appearing there, hence you may first check whether they are just hidden by clicking on the grey filtering symbol on top of that view. If there are still no indicators you need to check you data file again.

Second, it seems that you do not have any model defined. Without a model you cannot run calculations. Thus, you need to define your model first and assign indicator variables to be able to estimate a PLS model.

Thank you so much for your valuable time and reply. i think if the data was not valid so the data bar would never turned green which means that the data is valid as i saw on youtube or might be i am wrong. i will do the method you have guided me. then i will share the outcome with you.

Best Regards
