Error description

  • You are generating Custom Tables in IBM SPSS Statistics and are
    trying to use the MINCOLWIDTH and MAXCOLWIDTH keywords in the
    /FORMAT subcommand to control the size of the data columns.  The
    settings do have some effect, but do not seem to set the column
    width to the same resulting size that a similar setting in a
    table look does.
