Are you pasting the syntax from the GUI or writing it yourself? If the latter, try pasting it from the GUI instead.

Dear List, SPSS,

I have recently encountered a strange problem working with SPSS. When I use the GUI and save my data as a '>97' excel-file I have no problem using that file as input for a subsequent mailmerge with Outlook. When I use the standard SAVE TRANSLATE command with the nescessary subcommands to save my data as a '>97' excel-file, the file seems somehow corrupt. I can open it in Excel just fine but I can not use it in a mailmerge. Is this a common/well known problem (for older versions) of SPSS?
