Question on SPSS - Can't SAVE data file

Darryl Wahlstrom
I just purchased a monthly subscription of SPPS. I successfully downloaded it and imported data from an Excel file. I can do analysis of the data, but I am not able to save the data file. When I select "File" from the menu, both the "Save" and "Save as" are greyed out and inactive. Therefore, I can't click on them. Anyone have ideas as to why this is happening and how to remedy? Thanks, -D

Re: Question on SPSS - Can't SAVE data file

Ives, Melissa L
Did you try saving using syntax?

Replace the text between < and >:
SAVE OUTFILE='<full path and file name>.sav'.

Re: Question on SPSS - Can't SAVE data file

Rick Oliver
I don't know if this is relevant  but the documentation for the "Subscription-New" version says:

"The preview version only supports saving data files in IBM SPSS Statistics format."
