Error description

  • You are using IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0 and are trying to create
    an OLE DB Data source.  You launch Statistics, and from the
    welcome screen (i.e., What Would You Like To Do?), you select
    "Create New Query Using Database Wizard" and click OK.
    
    From the Database Wizard, you select the button that says "Add
    OLE DB Data Source" to get the Data Link Properties dialog, and
    you proceed to make your selections to configure your Data
    Source.  Finally, you click OK, the dialog closes, and you are
    returned to the Database Wizard without being prompted to save
    and name your Data Source.
    
    As a workaround, instead of accessing the Database Wizard from
    the initial
    Welcome Screen, click Cancel, and then select File->Open
    Database->New Query.  You will then receive all proper dialogs
    during OLE DB Data Source creation.
    

Local fix

  • This issue has been addressed in IBM SPSS Statistics Release 21.
