|Subject:||Simple Merge Revisited; Perplexed by seemingly "easy" program.|
|Date:||Fri, 1 Mar 2019 19:45:03 +0000|
This simple program is not working. Each is a PSPP data set with 30 observations, and there are no duplicate PatientIDs within each dataset. The PatientIDs match one-to one between each dataset (each PatientID in Condition.Sav appears once in Score.sav). Please note that line numbers below are for reference only and do not appear in the program.
I can open each data set individually; that is, if I run only lines 1 and 2, Condition.sav opens, and if I then open lines 3 and 4 dataset Score.sav opens.
HOWEVER, when I open Score.sav, Condition.sav no longer appears, apparently replaced by Score.sav.
When I run the entire program, the merge doesn’t work, and I just see Score.sav. My hunch is that Condition.sav is being replaced by Score.sav and is no longer “active” for the merge. In fact, I get these two error messages:
1. error: An error occurred while opening `Condition.sav': No such file or directory.
2. C:\Users\Mynamw\Desktop\PSPP SYNTAX 1.sps.1: error: `Condition.sav' is not a system or portable file.
How do I fix this problem so that Condition.sav and Score.sav will merge? Thank you very much!
SAVE OUTFILE="C:\Users\Myname\Desktop\merged data set.sav".
