Error description

  • When Modeler Client 18.0-FP1 is set to Japanese locale/UI,
    warning message/log from the SPSS Statistics backend is not
    translated correctly. Instead of the standard JP characters
    (Kanji, Hiragana etc), we observe boxes and garbage characters.
    
    This makes troubleshooting Statistics errors impossible as the
    end-user is unaware of what changes need to be made on their
    data set.
    
    Have tried adding the following SET commands as a Statistics
    Syntax as a workaround but it fails to resolve the issue:
    SET LOCALE='Japanese'.
    SET OLANG='Japanese'.
    
    All messages delivered by the Statistics backend engine (via the
    STATISTICS OUTPUT node) should be translated/displayed correctly
    so that the end-user is aware of the meaning of the warning/log.
    
    Any warnings/errors of Statistics Output node is useless for the
    end-user. End-user will end up spending a large amount of time
    to troubleshoot the problem unless they can read English or
    another language that does not garble these messages.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in the next Fix Pack for SPSs
    Statistics 24 release. Please refer
    to the Fix Pack schedule at
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21599157 for
    information on upcoming Fix Packs.
    If you encounter the issue described above please open a Service
    Request with IBM SPSS Technical Support.
    An Interim Fix was developed for customers who need the fix
    prior to the next upcoming Fix Pack.
    
    Please contact Technical Support with reference to APAR PI72020
    and Technote 1995740 about about Interim Fix 001
    for IBM SPSS Statistics 24 FP1.
    
    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.
