SPSS syntax not opening data file


#1

requested US 2014 ACS data, inserted pathname in SPSS syntax, after a few glitches got the syntax log with no error messages. But nothing else. What am I doing wrong?


#2

I was unable to replicate your issue. I downloaded your Extract #1 and the associated SPSS command file. I unzipped the data file, edited the cd command to specify the file path to the directory where my data file is located, and ran this edited command file in SPSS. It executed without error and the data properly displayed in the SPSS Data Editor window. Please attempt to open your data file again in SPSS by following these steps. Please also see our video tutorial of these steps here.

Hope this helps.
