Re: dictionary with record length that does agree with the variables

You are right, I should never had bothered you with such a tiny problem. We users are a bunch of weird animals that almost all the time do some crazy things. In my specific case I tried to copy some variables using a text editor because I thought at the time it would be faster. I had several fields ...

Re: dictionary with an item group

Here it goes. It is just a snipet from the whole data entry program. Execute the program \20_Programas\99_Testes\TestePessoas.ent. Use the third case. 3304557050904590032 Originally it has 4 persons. After executing the program it will have just the first one. I´m sending 2 copies of the input file,...

Re: dictionary with an item group

No, an item alpha with subitems, where the item takes all the fields in the record type.
If you need I can send you a small example.

dictionary with record length that does agree with the variables

I know I should not edit a data dictionary in an editor, but... I had a dictionary and used a text editor to include some variables by hand, but I forgot to change the record length, which became very short. When using this dictionary there is no warning message that the record length is smaller tha...

dictionary with an item group

I have a dictionary with several record types. One of them is for the persons, and I created an item_group for all variables in the record. Even if I do not use this item-group, when working with this dictionary in a capi program, it writes only the first person. No matter how many persons I insert ...

Dataviewer - exporting results

It would be good if we could export the dataviewer output to excel format, for example. Now we need to copy/paste one by one.

Re: Bad record type on line 1, record ignored

As far as I know there is no way you can have more than one record type in SPSS. In the CsPro dictionary, in order to eliminate the record type, besides putting 0 as the length you have to put a 0 as the starting position. That is the way to get rid of the record type. Then you can import your spss ...

Re: guarantee that all records exist

The problem is a little more complicated than that. It is a survey that occurs 4 times in the year (a panel survey), and for the next panel we have to show the household contents (some fields plus the person roster). So, it is not a matter of saving partial. In any case, following your suggestion, I...

Re: guarantee that all records exist

That´s precisely the point. I tried to use the advance, but then, it stops in every field that needs a value saying that the value is out of range. And I need to go to the end of the questionnaire where I have a field for the interviewer write some remarks about the interview. But if I skip to that ...

Re: guarantee that all records exist

I´m sorry, maybe I did not express my problem very well. The case already exists in the file, and it has all the records. But when I send it to the entry program via a pff file with StartMode=modify, depending upon some conditions I have to skip to a field, and then, the person roster, for example, ...
