Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 22 installed on a Macintosh
    computer (e.g. Mac OSX 10.7.5). You also have installed
    integrated Python package with Statistics 22. Additionally you
    installed R 2.15.2 for Macintosh and the R Essentials for
    Macintosh for release 22.
    On Statistics 22 you click on Utilities - Extension Bundles -
    Download and install Extension bundles to install the proper
    packages from IBM Developer Works in order to run a
    Heterogeneous Correlation analysis (SPSSINC HETCOR).
    
    After that you run a syntax like the example below:
    
    SPSSINC HETCOR x1 x2
      /OPTIONS ESTIMATOR=TWOSTEP STDERR=TRUE
      MISSING=PAIRWISE N=TRUE TYPE=TRUE
      /SAVE.
    
    The analysis is computed and you get all tables on output viewer
    without any error message.
    However, on correlations table for Heterogeneous Correlation
    analysis you see no computed value for the correlations and the
    standard error, only dot is displayed.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. It happens on comma
    based locale on Macintosh computer only but not on Windows
    computer.
    As a workaround set locale to English (SET LOCALE = English.)
    and run the above syntax again. This will display proper results
    on correlations table.
