Error description

  • The graph of a Nonparametric Tests > One Sample (found within
    the Model Viewer) is sorted alphabetically by value labels
    instead of using the variable values. This behaviour is
    happening on Statistics 20FP1.
    
    For example, the coding for the variable 'card' is:
    1=Amex
    2=Visa
    3=Mastercard
    4=Discover
    5=Other
    
    But the Model Viewer sorts the graph as:
    Amex, Discover, Mastercard, Other, Visa
    
    The graph should be sorted in the same manner as all of our
    other graphs and that is by variable values.
    

Local fix

  • This has been reported to IBM SPSS Statistics development for
    investigation. At this stage there are no know workarounds.
