Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.1 installed on a
    Windows 7 64 bit machine with NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 video card.
    In your data file you have very long variable names and very
    long variable labels. You use this variables on Custom tables
    dialog and drag them into the row dimension. Since the variables
    with the long names and labels have the same value labels you
    select 'row labels in column' option for the category position.
    Then you click on the Categories and totals button to change
    something but if you do this the dialog pop up but it is empty.
    
    This issue was reported to Development but it does not occur on
    machines with other video cards. As a workaround use shorter
    variable names and variable labels or use syntax. Then the
    problem will no longer happen.
