Make Data Dialog Builder

Jeff-2

 

Hi Jon,

 

I’ve successfully downloaded and installed v25 with python to replace my prior v24 without python (haven’t used python before, but have read the intro).

 

I’m a bit lost at the point of installing the files you sent. From Extension > Custom Dialog Builder for Extension -  when I’m in the Dialog Builder (haven’t used that before), I don’t see  File > New > Data with Cases. (either in the Dialog Builder window or the main SPSS windows) and clicking on “Install” brings up an error. I did place the .py where you mentioned, but I’m unsure what to do with the makedata.spd file.

 

Can you give me some additional hints here?

 

Best,

 

Jeff

Jeff,


Hopefully this will be helpful because Jon sent me the files as well. In SPSS, go to Extensions->Utilities->Install Custom Dialogue(Compatibility Mode). When I did this, it took me directly to my Downloads folder with the Makedata.spd. Do not use the Custom Dialogue Builder.


For the python file, I simply downloaded it and moved it to my Python folder. For me the path is Program Files->IBM->SPSS->Statistics->25->Python->Lib->Site Packages. That's a lot and may not be the same or as involved as this.

That did it. There was just one step missing in Jon’s instructions.
