Path is not a reserved word. What do you mean when you say that SPSS refuses
to work with it-what are the symptoms? Select it in the Descriptives dialog
box, paste the syntax and run it. What happens?

Subject: Re: odd problem in spss with variable name
There's a variable in our dataset called path. Spss (version 15) refuses to
work with that variable unless I select it in the Variable View and rename
it manually first. I cannot manage to rename it with syntax. I did not
think "path" was a system reserved command and SPSS should automatically
rename reserved names. Perhaps it's a glitch in my copy of spss?
