Error description

  • You work with either IBM SPSS Statistics release 25 or the SPSS
    Subscription release build 1.0.0.781.
    
    You perform the below steps:
    -    Launch SPSS 25 with any file, for example Employee Data.sav
    -    Click Analyze - Descriptive Statistics - Frequencies and
    use any variable, for example educational level. Click on
    Bootstrap button and just check the box "Perform Bootstrapping"
    on top of dialog, click continue.
    -    Also, paste the syntax or click OK on dialog
    
    You notice the below behavior:
    
    No bootstrapping will be performed as not any bootstrap syntax
    is pasted from dialog in release 25 and not in Subscription
    release.
    
    In SPSS 25 and on Subscription release build 1.0.0.781 only this
    syntax is pasted:
    
    DATASET ACTIVATE DataSet1.
    FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=educ
      /ORDER=ANALYSIS.
    
    In release 24 FP2 this is not an issue at all and correct syntax
    is pasted:
    
    DATASET ACTIVATE DataSet1.
    BOOTSTRAP
      /SAMPLING METHOD=SIMPLE
      /VARIABLES INPUT=educ
      /CRITERIA CILEVEL=95 CITYPE=PERCENTILE  NSAMPLES=1000
      /MISSING USERMISSING=EXCLUDE.
    FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=educ
      /ORDER=ANALYSIS.
    
    If you copy the syntax from 24 FP2 into release 25 syntax and
    run it you will get the bootstrap performed.
    Repeat the steps for FREQUENCIES, CROSSTABS and DESCRIPTIVES and
    enable Bootstrap for these procedures as well.
    It will not run for any of these procedures as no syntax for
    bootstrap is pasted as well.
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
