Error description

  • You have run a model with the Direct Marketing procedure
    Propensity to Purchase in IBM SPSS Statistics. You directed the
    procedure to save the model as an xml file. With a new data set
    active, you opened the "Direct Marketing->Choose technique" menu
    and chose "Apply scores from a model file", selecting this xml
    file in the "Select a Scoring Model" box.
    
    However, when this xml file is selected, the "Model Details" box
    returns the error message
    "The model is not valid or it is not supported by SPSS
    Statistics".
    This file also generates the error when you try to use it from
    the Utilities->Scoring Wizard menu.
    
    The xml model file was generated by a Direct Marketing procedure
    (Propensity to Purchase), so it should be acceptable to the
    scoring wizard.  Development has indicated that the presence of
    blank values, i.e. empty
    strings, in the analysis data  set will lead to corrupted
    corrupted xml files. One workaround  is to assign a value label
    to blank strings or declare them to be user-missing  values
    before running the Propensity to Purchase procedure.
