Error description

  • You work with Statistics 21 installed as 64 bit application on a
    Windows 7 64 bit operating system. You have also installed IBM
    Java SDK 1.6.0 for 64 bit Windows in order to work with the Java
    Integration Plugin.
    You created a .java file with the proper commands in order to
    create an input file including a string variable with more than
    1024 characters in it.
    You compile the .java file into a java class file and run it.
    The IBM SPSS data file (.SAV) is created successfully but you
    notice that the string content is splitted into two rows where
    it was expected to have the string text in one row only.
    
    This issue was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in the next Fix Pack. Please refer
    to the Fix Pack schedule at
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21599157 for
    information on upcoming Fix Packs.
    Please note however, that although in the expected fix all
    string text will be put in one row line, the string text will be
    truncated to 1024 charachter, and throw the characters exceeding
    this limitation as this is a limitation of the BEGIN DATA syntax
    command used with the .NET class file. "Inline data records are
    limited to a maximum of 80 columns. (On some systems, the
    maximum may be fewer than 80 columns.) If data records exceed 80
    columns, they must be stored in an external file that is
    specified on the FILE subcommand of the DATA LIST (or similar)
    command. "
    
    On the example above, below syntax will work, the abc.txt will
    contain all string data.
    
    SET PRINTBACK ON MPRINT ON.
    DATA LIST FILE='c:\temp\abc.txt' FREE /testvar (A10000) .
    SAVE OUTFILE='c:\temp\test.sav'.
