Hi Tim, this has happened to me before in 10.0. I honestly don't know how or if
I corrected it. I think I just re-opened the program and data set and they
magically reappeard. I'd look to see if there is a function that is "hiding"
your data only. If that doesn't work, I'd suggest calling SPSS tech support at
1-312-651-3410. It is in Chicago. They'll probably ask you for your SPSS
license number, which you can get from your University computer systems or
whoever holds your SPSS license, but I was able to talk to someone even without
it. They support SPSS 11.0 and above currently and were very helpful for me.
