indicator is not unique

Post by mariasadiq » Thu Aug 20, 2020 1:38 pm

1) when I try to import data file in PLS software either in csv format or txt format, this error comes :
Line 0: Indicator 'is' is not unique
Line 0: Indicator 'your' is not unique
Line 0: Indicator 'job' is not unique
and many more errors like this
And on the left side of window of PLS, there comes an error "your datafile setup is corrupt. Please open the data file and revise the setup"

what to do with these error. pls guide?

2) in my excel data file, many fields are blank (because the respondent has not answered that question so the field for that question is blank), but those questions are not related to survey items (actual questions of survey), rather those questions are about introduction of respondent like what is job position/briefly describe your job, so now what to do with these blank fields?

Your kind help will be highly appreciated.
