Version 10.0.7 was the first that SPSS claimed compatible w/ Win2K. I've been using that combo for several months and not run into a problem with recode. Have you been tracking which version you've had a problem with (might it occur only with earlier versions)? Have the problems been with particular workstations (I'm wondering if a Celeron has enough horsepower)?
