Error description

  • In IBM SPSS Statistics 21, when exporting an output containing
    pivot tables, a line (used to separate variables) is not
    appearing when values from the previous variable is present.
    
    For example,
    Near the top of an exported PDF page, you have a variable called
    'Code 5B'. You see the variable 'Code 5B' does not have a line
    across the full width of the table because, just above 'Code 5B'
    are values for the previous variable 'Code 5A'.
    
    This occurs many times in the exported output and all instances
    show the previous variable's values present before the line is
    hidden.
    
    Lines separating variables should always be present. The fact
    that the previous variable's values being printed on two pages
    should not affect this output. This occurs on a custom template
    or using the default SPSS Statistics output template.
