Apologies, the file issue relates both to SPSS version 23 using a PC, Windows 7
SPSS version 24 on a MacBook Pro (late 2011 model), OS X El Capitan
I'm not sure what data info you require specifically but within the file, I currently have 273 columns of data comprising scale, nominal and ordinal measures.
I know how to transform the data and recode into different variables, but the options I would expect to see in the 'Old and New Values' section are greyed out using this file.
If I open up a new file within the software (both types above using different computers) and type in dummy data, then try and transform into different variables as above, the process works.
There is something the software doesn't like in the file that I'm working with but I don't know what. Before I add to the dataset, I am trying to isolate what the issue might be and to work out if anyone has experience of this happening so I can go through the options. At the moment I don't know where to begin!
Thanks for your help
