Maybe I do something wrong, but often I can't get the right datafile active
1 I start SPSS (v 14.0.2 by the way)
2 I open data file 1
3 I open a syntax file
4 I open data file 2
Data file 2 now becomes the active file (marked with the green cross)
5 Now I click on data file 2 to make it active. The green mark suggests that
everyting is ok.
6 To make the syntax window visible I click on it. Now the green mark moves
to data file 1.
While replicating this problem I noticed that it is solved if I minimize the
syntax window and maximize it immediately thereafter.
By the way: it should be nice if in future releases SPSS could stay open
with NO data file open. Just close the data file and keep SPSS open.
