Error description

  • You installed IBM SPSS Statistics 27 release on a Windows 10
    computer.
    You have some Python 2 scripts that worked fine in earlier
    release SPSS Statistics 26.
    You are now converting these scripts to Python 3 as this is the
    embedded Python version in release 27.
    
    You have a certain script that will copy a certain pivot table
    and change the table title of the copied table on output viewer.
    The table title contain a certain character of an Eastern Europe
    language.
    The converted script works fine in SPSS 27. However, on the new
    table title the certain character is not displayed correctly. It
    is replaced with strange values on new table title.
    

Local fix

  • This was reported to IBM SPSS Development and is expected to be
    addressed in a future release or fixpack.
    If you encounter the issue described above please open a Ticket
    with IBM SPSS Technical Support at
    https://www.ibm.com/mysupport/.
    An Interim Fix was developed for customers who need the fix
    prior to the next upcoming Fix Pack.
    Please contact SPSS Technical Support with reference to APAR
    PH27006 , technote 6244076, AVS group 76978, about Interim Fix
    001 for IBM SPSS Statistics 27 GA release.
    Note: Interim fixes are limited corrections to specific issues
    reported by one or more customers.
    They are normally sent only to customers who have reported one
    of the corrected problems, and who require  an immediate
    correction. Interim Fixes do not address customer enhancement
    requests, and not all defect corrections can be delivered as
    Interim Fixes. Due to their urgency Interim Fixes undergo only
    targeted testing of specific fixes, not full regression testing.
    If the fix is not urgently required, you may prefer to wait for
    a scheduled Fix Pack Release, which will be fully regression
    tested. Interim Fix corrections, once fully regression tested,
    are automatically included in a future Fix Pack.
