Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 24 release and open any data
    *.sav file. A lot of variables in this file do have value labels
    defined for the category numbers. On Data Editor you turned the
    option 'Display Value Lables' to be active.
    So on Data Editor - Data View you see the value labels in the
    cell instead the actual value.
    You scroll down to the end of the file in order to enter a new
    row manually.
    You use your keyboard to enter numeric values in new cells where
    the option value label display is on.
    You notice although you do not enter values fast that the
    entered values are doubled in the cell.
    for example when you enter a "1" in the cell it is doubled to
    "11".
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. However, when you
    like to enter data values with keyboard keys manually it is
    always recommended to turn the display of value labels off. If
    you use this option the design is to use the mouse and select
    the cell dropdown for value labels to enter new values for
    variables that have value labels.
