  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 24 FP1 on Hebrew locale.
    - Open SPSS 24 FP1.
    - Go to -> Edit -> Options -> Syntax Editor. Check "optimize for
    right to left languages"
    - Set Locale to Hebrew
    - Close program and restart it. Open new syntax window
    
    Type:
    
    A | B
    
    - Save the syntax
    -  Reopen the syntax
    
    When you reopen the syntax you see the pipe sign | is gone. This
    does NOT happen when "optimize for right to left languages" is
    turned off
    As the option optimize for right to left languages is important
    for Hebrew it should not remove signs like pipe from syntax.
    This was reported to IBM SPSS development. As a workaround turn
    above option off for now or do not use pipe sign on comments
    resp. syntax abbreviations with characters instead.
    

Local fix

  • This issue is being investigated and will probably be addressed
    in a future release of IBM SPSS Statistics.
