APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You have created a pivot table in SPSS Statistics 20 with table
    rendering set to FAST (or LIGHT).  You export your results to
    Adober Acroibat Reader format (.pdf).  You open the exported
    file in Reader and doe CTRL+A.  Not all of the text is selected.
    Doing the same thing in PASW Statistics 18.0.x did not have this
    behavior.
    

Local fix

  • There was no such thing as FAST tables in Statistics 18.  To
    duplicate the behavior in Statistics 18, issue a SET command:
    SET TABLERENDER=FULL.
    When desired, issue another SET command to return to Light/Fast
    tables:  SET TABLERENDER=FAST.
