I've used SPSS v18 at work until today when the system was updated to v220.127.116.11
When I tried to open my files in version 21 all of my date and time variables was in numeric format in the data editor window, even though the Type was set to "Date - in the same format as in SPSS 18". The names in the data editor window also seemed to have changed to "var", even though they still had the correct variable name in variable view. Can anyone tell me what could be the cause of this problem?
I even tried to open some raw data from excel and transform them with my old syntax, but the date and time variables still showed ut as "var" in numeric format. Tried to look trough alternatives, without getting any closer to a solution.
