EMFLAG option in ASReml-3

I have got an RR analysis where I am getting negative sum of squares
(Please find code below). I am interested in seeing if the EMFLAG
options can help (on the other hand I may not have enough data to do
what I am thinking of).


Nevertheless my question is about the syntax for using the EMFLAG. As
you can see I have tried !EMFLAG 7 (I have also tried other numbers) but
nothing seems to come up in the .asr file indicating that EM has been
used (and the negative sums of squares appears and the run crashes).


All I am wondering is if I have the syntax right?


Thanking you kindly
