interpretation question

Chris Fisher-2
Recently my office purchased the EXACT module. Playing around with it and
ran into an interpretation issue:

If, when running the chi-square through nonparametrics, the exact method is
selected, two test statistics are reported, 1 for each of the variables in
the table. I'm familiar with reporting the p-value when Fisher's is
requested through crosstabs, but this is a new one, and it would be nice to
know how to interpret the SPSS since it's now possible to do more than a
2x2.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: interpretation question

Please report the syntax you are using and a
description of the variables you are analyzing.
Your first sentence makes it sound like you are
running NPAR TESTS. Are you running NPAR TESTS
or CROSSTABS? What statistical test are you interested
in? Are you interested in the usual test of independence
in a two-way table, or in some other test?
