Dear Rami,

The problem you refer to is a bug in the initial commercial release of
ASReml 1.00

You need to upgrade to ASReml 1.10f which can be done from the website
or by contacting VSN. The version number is displayed at the top of the
.asr file
and should be quoted when reporting an error.

I strongly suggest anyone who is using the original release, upgrade to

Best wishes for Christmas 2005.

        Subject: Two trait animal model

Dear ASREMLers;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
I am trying to run a two trait animal model. I am having trouble in
fitting different fixed factors for each of the traits. I tried to specify
that by using: at(Trait,1).Factor1 at(Trait,2)Factor2 in the model
statement. However, I am getting an error message indicating fault in
reading the model terms at(Tr,1)Factors. The program will run fine if the
same factors were fitted for all traits. Any idea how to fit and specify
different factors for different traits in multiple trait analyses.
The as program that I am trying to run is:

Two trt MS 02 1 and 2
 YR1 !I
 YR2 !I
MS1 MS2 ~ Trait at(Tr,1).YR1 at(Tr,2).YR2 !r Tr.ANM # !f mv
1 2 1
0 0 ID
2 0 US #.02 .02 .03 !GP
3 * 0 !GP
Tr.ANM 2
2 0 US .01 .07 .04 !GP

And the message I get in .asr file is:
  <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns =
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Reading pedigree file
02_1_2.TXT : skipping 0 lines
 PEDIGREE [02_1_2.TXT ] has 1551 identities, 4558 Non zero elements
 Reading 02_1_2.TXT FREE FORMAT skipping 0 lines
 Invalid definition for model term at(Tr,1)
         1 is outside [0, 2]
 Fault 0 Error reading model factor list
  Last line read was: MS1 MS2 Trait at(Tr,1).YR1 at(Tr,2).YR2 !r

Any Clue ... Thanks
