When I exported the output and copy /pasted it I realised my error: the TO appeared twice.
/nom = n1 to to n14 (1)

End of alarm. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you for the rapid answers which helped me to find my error.

Is this caused by the period after the second line of COUNT? I think
"/nom.." and "/activ..." are orphaned by the period. If so, maybe this
error message could be improved?

I get an error message for a COUNT command, but don't understand it.

There is a list of 14 consecutive items with values of 0 and 1 named
d1 to d14. I want to get the number of times 1 was answered with the
COUNT command.

The output says:

donate = d1 to d14 (1).
(name of sps file).sps 15-16: Error: Syntax error in 'to': attends
variable name.
/nom = n1 to n14 (1)
/activ = a1 to a14 (1).

I don't see an error in my simple syntax.

Any ideas ?
