Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics version 27 on Japanese locale.
    You try to import a CSV file that contains Japanese variable
    names on first row.
    When you run the GET DATA syntax, the file is not imported.
    Instead, on output viewer you get below message:
    >Error.  Command name: GET DATA
    >(2278) A variable name does not conform to the rules for
    variable names. <Japanese characters listed on error>
    >Execution of this command stops.
    CACHE.
    EXECUTE.
    
    The same file is omported just fine for the same file within IBM
    SPSS Statistics 26 on the same machine.
    

Local fix

  • This was reported to IBM SPSS Development and is expected to be
    addressed in a future release or fixpack.
