Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 24 or an earlier version. You
    have saved data as a SPSS *sav data file. On File menu you
    select the option 'Mark file read only' to not change the data
    for a while in the same session.
    Then you would like to use the File menu again to use the option
    Mark File Read Write to save changes now to the same *.sav file,
    but you do not see the option available.
    
    You need to close the file first and then re-open it. After that
    the option File - Mark file Read Write is available.
    However, you think this should be changed to have both options
    available in the same session without re-opening the file. In
    the documentation there is no hint that you have to do so.
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    

Local fix

  • This issue is expected to be addressed in a future fixpack for
    IBM SPSS Statistics 24.
