APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Upon Installing, un-installing upgrading Python or IBM SPSS
    Statistics, the installation loses track of the location of the
    SPSS Extension commands (e.g. FUZZY) and throws a traceback
    error about not being able to find the module.
    

Local fix

  • Edit the
    "/Applications/IBM/SPSS/Statistics/20/SPSSStatistics.app/Content
    s/MacOS/statsenv.sh" and add a reference to the location of the
    SPSS Extension commands.  For instance:
    
    # Where are the Extension Commands.
       export SPSS_EXTENSIONS_PATH='/Library/Application
    Support/IBM/SPSS/Statistics/20/extensions/'
