Dear List,

I am trying to enable Python in my newly installed SPSS 16.0. I have got the error >Error # 6887. Command name: begin program and now I am trying to follow Jon Peck's advices in an old post (Subject of the thread "Ctables/Python merge", 14 Aug 2007):

>This means that programmability is not installed correctly. >Be sure that you have installed exactly the right plug-in corresponding to your SPSS version - there are quite a few on the Plugin page, and that last digit matter.

>Check the file spssdxcfg.ini in your SPSS installation directory. It should have the HOME variable set to the Python location and the spssdx_version variable matching your SPSS version.

>Check that you have the invokePython.dll file in your SPSS installation directory. >Check that you can actually run Python directly (say, from the Start menu) so you know that Python is ok. >Try running SPSS from Python by opening IDLE a Python command line from the Start menu and doing something like this: import spss spss.Submit("show dir") > to see if the external drives mode works. Note that in this mode you do not use the BEGIN/END PROGRAM syntax. In the last step, Python (in IDLE) gave this message: IDLE 1.2 >>> import spss >>> spss.Submit("show dir")

Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module> spss.Submit("show dir") File "C:\Program Files\Pzthon25\lib\site-packages\spss160\spss\", line 1179, in Submit cmdList = spssutil.CheckStr(cmdList) File "C:\Program Files\Pzthon25\lib\site-packages\spss160\spss\", line 10, in CheckStr if PyInvokeSpss.IsUTF8mode(): AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'IsUTF8mode' >>>

What does this mean and how to repair it?

Thanks in advance
