Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 24 release with FixPack 1
    installed.
    You have a file created in release 23 where you have variables
    defined as variable type Restricted Numeric e.g. with length of
    8 so that integer values are padded with leading zeros
    For example the content of the variable looks like the below
    when you open the file in SPSS 23 FP3:
    
    V1
    
    00000001
    00000002
    00112221
    00002111
    -1234.456
    23.345
    
    When you open the same file in release 24 FP1 you see the
    leading zeros are removed from variables with type Restricted
    Numeric:
    
    v1
    
    1
    2
    112221
    2111
    -1234.456
    23.345
    
    This issue does not happen with release 24 where no fixpack was
    installed.
    The problem was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
