Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and created a Production
    Job *.SPJ file. After running the job you locate the Session
    Journal file Statistics.jnl on your computer to check what
    syntax commands have been executed in the single SPSS sessions.
    You notice when you run syntax commands 'normally' all commands
    in the Journal file are displayed correctly.
    However, all syntax commands run via production job are
    displayed without the last character of any row in the session
    journal.
    
    For example the commands displayed in statistics.jnl file
    executed by production job looks like the one below in the
    Journal. As you can see it does not only affect the command
    terminator dot, it does also affect variable names (jobca
    instead of jobcat) and syntax keywords (MAXIMU instead of
    MAXIMUM):

    *>FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=educ jobca
    *>  /FORMAT=NOTABL
    *>  /STATISTICS=STDDEV MINIMUM MAXIMU
    *>  /HISTOGRA
    *>  /ORDER=ANALYSIS
