Error description

  • You have generated a sequence plot with a date variable on the
    X-axis. Under some date formats, the date values appear in the
    axis with the characters "o'clock AM" or "o'clock PM". These
    characters are not desired in the date values.
    This date format issue has appeared in graphs that were run on
    computers running in English-Canadian locale. A defect report
    has been filed with IBM SPSS Development. Switching to
    US-English locale has resolved the problem to date. You can
    change the locale from the Edit->Options menu in SPSS. Click the
    Language tab and change the Locale frto English-US from the
    scrollbar in the in the Character Encoding For Data and Syntax "
    area. You can only change the locale when you do not have an
    active data set open in SPSS Statistics.
