Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 24 FixPack 1 and created a
    custom dialog *.spe file with
    Extensions - Custom Dialog builder for Extensions dialog
    
    Your SPE file include a combo box. For this box you enabled a
    syntax for list Item Properties. On List Items properties dialog
    you selected the checkbox "Write the value (not the label) to
    the syntax"
     When you install this dialog and use it for a variable with
    value labels you would like to have the values like 0 or 1
    pasted and not the value labels.
    
    But when you paste the syntax for this dialog you get value
    labels pasted, not the values so this syntax cannot run without
    changes.
    
    Next, you click Extensions - Utilities and open the older Custom
    Dialog Builder (compatibility mode).
    
    You create the same dialog on this older CDB and save it as
    *.spd file.
    you also install this *.SPD file and use it with the same
    variable as before.
    For this dialog it is also checked to paste values instead of
    value labels to the syntax.
    
    If you paste the syntax for this dialog the syntax looks like
    expected. You get values instead of value labels.
    this was reported to IBM SPSS development.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in a future release of IBM SPSS
    Statistics.
    
    If you encounter the issue described above and it is not
    possible for you to wait for the next release of SPSS Statistics
    please open a Service Request with IBM SPSS Technical Support.
    An Interim Fix was developed to address the issue.
    Please contact Technical Support with reference to APAR PI69111
    and AVS group 39636 about about Interim Fix 002
    for IBM SPSS Statistics 24 FP2.
    
    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.
