Error description

  • Using the 'Choose a color' dialog window to edit a pivot table
    to change the background colour will not apply changes if 'OK'
    is pressed, however, it will apply changes when 'Cancel' is
    pressed. These buttons appear to have been swapped around.
    
    This issue applies to Windows installations of SPSS Statistics,
    this works as expected on a Mac OS machine.
    
    Workaround:
    Once you have chosen the colour you want applied, click on 'OK'
    just once, then click on 'Cancel'. This will close the 'Choose a
    color' dialog window and return you to the 'Table Properties'
    dialog window with the colour change ready to be applied to the
    table.
