Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and created a custom table.
    For the row variable you create a new category with 'Add
    category' option and activate 'Hide categories used in
    expression from table'. For the column variable you select to
    have a total column displayed on the table. Additionally for the
    row variable you select for category position: 'Row labels in
    columns' .
    However, on the resulting table you notice that the original
    categories are not hidden on the 'Totals' column, but thzey are
    hidden on the other columns.

    CTABLES
      /VLABELS VARIABLES=educ minority DISPLAY=LABEL
      /PCOMPUTE &cat1 = EXPR([8] + [12])
      /PPROPERTIES &cat1 LABEL = "<= 12" FORMAT=COUNT F40.0
    HIDESOURCECATS=YES
      /TABLE educ [C][COUNT F40.0] BY minority [C]
      /CLABELS ROWLABELS=OPPOSITE
      /CATEGORIES VARIABLES=educ [8, 12, &cat1, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,
    19, 20, 21, OTHERNM] EMPTY=INCLUDE
