Subject:      SPSS Macro error
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"

Dear SPSS Listers: I am trying to write my first SPSS macro with v. 13.0 for Windows. I got the following error message:

>Error # 6839 in column 25. Text: ( >In a macro expression, a left parenthesis immediately follows an operand. >This command not executed.

Where do I look for "column 25"? The message doesn't reference line numbers, like usual error messages.

Thanks for any help! Sincerely,

Joe Hoffman
