Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.1 for Macintosh on A
    10.7.3 OSX. You have a file with a variable that has Japanese
    variable labels. You would like to replace the existing variable
    with the Transform - Visual Binning dialog. However, after you
    entered all information and click OK you notice that the program
    gets unresponsive. You still can click on the menus at the top
    (e.g. File or Transform menu) but the icon bar is unresponsive
    and you cannot switch between data view and variable view any
    more.
    
    this was reported to IBM SPSS Development. As a worakaround
    please run the syntax instead similar as on the example below,
    depending on what bins you would like to create.
    
    RECODE  MR_pre (MISSING=COPY) (LO THRU 2=1) (LO THRU HI=2)
    (ELSE=SYSMIS) INTO MR4.
    VARIABLE LABELS  MR4.
    FORMATS  MR4 (F5.0).
    VALUE LABELS  MR4 1 '<= 2' 2 '3+'.
    VARIABLE LEVEL  MR4 (ORDINAL).
    EXECUTE.
