Subject: SPSS error message
I have received the following error message when running the "explore"
>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.
