Error description

  • You run the SUMMARIZE command on a set of data and get a
    warning:
     All cases have been eliminated due to missing value treatment.
    
    You check the data and see that, though other variables in the
    dataset do have missing values, the variables and records of
    interest to you and relevant to your SUMMARIZE command are
    actually complete.
    
    To Workaround this problem you could:
    1) Use SPLIT FILES and LIST to obtain the same list of recordss
    that SUMMARIZE would have given.
    2) Use SORT and MATCH FILES to match the file against itself
    dropping the extraneous variables.  Then use SUMMARIZE on this
    subset of the original data.
