Hi there,
We are trying to export our survey syntax into SPSS 20 - followed all the instructions and continuously receiving constant repetitions of the following errors for each variable - alas, no output is achieved. Any ideas



>Error # 100. Command name: RENAME VARIABLE
>This command is not permitted before the beginning of file definition
>commands.
>Execution of this command stops.
RENAME VARIABLE ( V67 = C7_other ).

Did you modify the line that does the actual import so it can find the file? Line 4 i think it is. There should be a different error before this one as the renames are on the end of the file.

The real error: >(2269) Failure opening file: /Users/HackettandTiger/survey_61547_SPSS_data_file.dat

Line 5 should be modified to read the full path to the file. When it can find the file it will run normal.
