Subject:      SPSS error message

Hi all,

I have received the following error message when running the "explore" procedure:

>Error # 701 in column 12. Text: PAIRWISE >An undefined variable name, or a scratch or system variable was specified >in a variable list which accepts only standard variables. Check spelling >and verify the existence of this variable. >This command not executed.

I found a post on here from 1998 which had the same problem and someone had advised the following: "Try using /MISSING=PAIRWISE instead of /MISSING PAIRWISE. The error message you are getting means that SPSS is trying to find a variable name "pairwise" rather than recognizing pairwise as a keyword on a command".

I am assuming the advice above can only be done using the syntax editor, which i'm not using. Does anyone know how to resolve the issue??? I'd really appreciate any advice.
