Dear all,

I have a question regarding robust(): I'm using robust with clubSandwich-option for testing moderator effects.
In the test of moderators, a negative df2-value appears:
Test of Moderators (coefficients 1:8):�
F(df1 = 8, df2 = -2.68) = 0.0000, p-val = NA

In the standard output (without CRVE):

Test of Moderators (coefficients 1:8):

QM(df = 8) = 10.0880, p-val = 0.2589

How could I interpret this phenomen? Could this happen due to small numbers of ES for some of the moderators?

Thank you for your help!
