Error description

  • You have an SPSS data file with some date variables and open
    this SAV file in IBM SPS Statistics 24.
    -    Content of date variable 1 is in format yyyy/mm/dd    e.g
    2000/05/10
    -    Content of date variable 2 is in format dd-mmm-yyyy e.g.
    08-Jun-2015
    You click Transform - Date and Time wizard, select to extract a
    part of a date or time variable, click next
     On Step 1 of 2 on the Date and Time wizard click the date
    variable 1 into the Date and Time field and look what Format is
    displayed for this variable.
    
    Notice the current behavior:
    On the dialog the format of this variable is displayed as ddd
    hh:mm, although it should be yyyy/mm/dd
     This does not happen for the other date variable 2 when you use
    it on this dialog. The format is displayed as dd-mmm-yyyy.
     However, the display format does not affect functionality. If
    you use date variable 1 (which is displayed with format ddd
    hh:mm on screen) and select to extract years for example and
    create the new year variable it works fine.
    So the issue is annoying but not affecting functionality.
    This issue was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
