I have a problem with running the SPSS syntax for the first time.
I extracted a dataset of about 24 patients with a lot of CRF's.
When I want to run the SPSS syntax I get these errors:
-Get Data ((2265) unrecognized or invalid variable format. The format is invalid. For numeric formats, the width or decimals value may be invalid).
-Variable labels& Value labels: This command is not permitted before the beginning of file definition commands.
- Execute: This command is not valid before a working file has been defined.
When I uploaded the CRF's to OpenClinica there were no errors in the format...
In the syntax I tried to put in the location of the SPSS_DAT.dat file. But this didn't work.
Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?
