Cannot edit command file

Hi. When I open the command file I cannot edit it. The cursor will not work on it.

I also tried opening my data as an SAS file which I saw recommended on another forum, but when I decompressed the file and then tried to open it, it brought me back to the command file page, and again my cursor could not do anything on the page.

If you are having trouble editing the command file in your statistical software, you may want to follow up with help forums for that specific statistical package. You could try to make modifications to the underlying file using a text editor (e.g., TextPad, Sublime, Notepad) rather than the statistical software program or request a formatted data file that you can open directly in statistical software rather than reading in the fixed width data via a syntax file.
