Error message that is unusual

Postby Storyteller » Thu Nov 09, 2017 9:54 pm

Hi
I am using SPSS v23. Not all the time, but some times when I try to open an already saved data or output file, the message says " The viewer document was created in IBM SPSS statiscs version 25 and some objects may not be view-able in your current version of the software." But I have no access to v25 near or remotely( a school version is also 23).
Anyone had the similar experience and know the reason? I will appreciate any input for this.
Thank you

Only seen when output file was from a prior version, believe prior to 22 or 23 when the file suffix and format was changed but when you use the phrase "saved data or output file" not clear. The data file has not changed

Go into file associations to make sure set correct and see if helps

Try doing a search for "File Associations" using the search icon in the lower left of your task bar then go from there
