I've been having problems printing with SPSS 8.0. At times sending
either a selection or "all visible" to the printer results in little
more than a page feed. I notice that the number of copies is grayed
out when this happens. (Printing is handled through a Novel network.)
I've also had problems selecting more than one section from the viewer
and printing it, e.g., the last half of the output that appears in the
viewer. I haven't figured out a way to, say, select from a given point
to the end of the document...
I've also been getting a lot of catastrophic errors that shut SPSS
down. Sometimes Help is available and other times it isn't. Also, is
there some undocumented maximum length on syntax? I built a syntax
file that contained multiple ODBC database calls to create .sav files
from Access data and the ODBC refused to run when I got up to about
890 lines. Mind you, I wasn't trying to run all these sections as one
block... the last section was little more than a dozen lines and it
absolutely refused to run. The viewer showed four lines of code being
read and then it quit.
I'm running a P233 with 128 meg of RAM with WIN 95 and Office 97 and
haven't had problems with any other apps.--including a complex Access
2.0 evaluation database that I support. (SPSS resides on the C:
drive.) Has anyone noticed conflicts with SPSS and Norton Antivirus or
with UPS management software that could be causing me
problems--removing the TSRs doesn't seem to help...
Any tips or other feedback would be appreciated as I have a huge
amount of programming to write and data to run by mid February and
these problems are slowing me up big time! Going back to 6.1 isn't an
option as the ODBC quit working when I installed Access 97...
...feeling like I'm on the bleeding edge of technology again!
