By the way, it used to make sense to use narrow formats back when SPSS or PSPP showed output with fixed-width columns, where using a narrower format allowed more data to display horizontally. But these days, with the output engines that SPSS and PSPP have, usually there isn't a benefit to a narrow format. So, I think that it's usually fine to just use a wide format, say F8.1 or F40.1. It doesn't require much thought and the output will look good.

Thanks for the report.

A width of 3 is enough to show one integer digit, a decimal point, and one fractional digit, but not enough for two integer digits, a decimal point, and one fractional digit. Use F4.1 or a wider format instead.
