Error 105

Gabby
Hello All,

I am hoping some can shed some light on this. I searched the archives for
this subject but only found entries around this for someone who was writing
there own syntax which I am not doing.

I've been trying to open a text file (just like I have one hundred and one
times before) and I can't. Thinking that it was perhaps something having do
to do with my machine I sent the .xmlx file, to be converted to .txt to be
read by SPSS (we are running PASW 18) - in short the same chain of events
that I had tried. She came up with the same error message.

The file is a 4x4 of dates in various formats. We are creating an
application for data collection and will be linking it to SPSS so I was
trying to test the format they chose (dd/mm/yyyy) to see if/how it opened. I
also decided to test a couple of other formats as well. I need the dates to
come over as dates from the databases so I can run calculations off of them.

Here is the syntax I got back along with the error message.

GET DATA
  /TYPE=TXT
  /FILE="C:\Documents and Settings\gcb\My Documents\date test 4.txt"
  /DELCASE=LINE
  /DELIMITERS="\t"
  /ARRANGEMENT=DELIMITED
  /FIRSTCASE=2
  /IMPORTCASE=ALL
  /VARIABLES=
  date1 ADATE10
  date2 DATE11
  date3 ADATE10
  date4 ADATE10
  date5 EDATE10.

>Error.  Command name: GET DATA
>(2269) Failure opening file: C:\Documents and Settings\gcboutemy\My
Documents\date test 4.txt

CACHE.
EXECUTE.

>Error # 105.  Command name: EXECUTE

DATASET NAME DataSet3 WINDOW=FRONT.

Thank you all for you input.

Best,
Gabby

The syntax says "Settings\gcb\My"

The message says "Settings\gcboutemy\My"

can you find the file without using SPSS? (In Windows it would be Explorer, on a Mac it would be "Find".)

Is the file open in another application?
