i'am working with an old SPSS script that imports data from the programm Inquisit. I use SPSS 23 and Inquisit 4.
I have a variable "c" (correct) and a varible "trialcode". Trialcode has for example the entry "nc01" (number comparison 01). Now in the Syntax there are entrys written like the following: "c.nc01". These entrys all get me the error message "Rename Variables" (not defined variable, check spelling and make sure the varible exists. Did you rename the variable or delet it?).
I was thinking that maybe in older SPSS versions it was standart to load all these variabel-combinations and this is no longer the case. Or that accessing varibles by writing "variable1.value-variable2" no longer works for SPSS 23. Do you know more about the "." between variables? Or how i can import these variables properly?
Thank you for reading! And sorry for the language, i'am form switzerland.
