This appears to be due to a known bug,
fixed in the Release 22.214.171.124 FixPack (under old numbering what would have
been known as the 19.0.1 patch), available on the Patches page on the support
web site (http://support.spss.com).
I've opened a support case for you and we will follow up to make sure that
installing the FixPack resolves the issue.
I recently had spss 19 installed and when I ran a program to save out a
sas dataset, the dataset did not save. There was no error message
either, I just happened to check the date on the file before I sent it
to a sas user and discovered it was an older version. There are several
such statements in the syntax file and in checking I discovered none of
the sas files were saved. I've been using the syntax for some time
with no problem in v 18, but here it is for reference:
SAVE TRANSLATE OUTFILE= 'l:\shared\com\stress.health\restricted\data\FSH1\data\system\FSHlong.sas7bdat'
/TYPE=SAS /VERSION=7 /PLATFORM=WINDOWS /REPLACE.
Did something change? I checked the reference file and couldn't see
anything, but I may be just overlooking it. If anyone knows what
I need to do to fix this, I'd be grateful for the info!
