keyword [n] in labels stopped working in v1.3.1005

3 comment(s)     Jan 20, 2017

I just downloaded the new version of the program yesterday. I’m noticing that the base sizes are disappearing on some of the projects I created in the older version of Report Builder. They are replaced with (n=). I also tried creating a new table and I’m having the same issue. I think I tried al... [view]


Missing placeholder values cause export problems

0 comment(s)     Nov 3, 2016

In a powerpoint slide: If a placeholder value is set, but the placeholder doesn't exist in your slide layout template, the exported powerpoint slide will have unreadable content (and powerpoint will give an error). This scenario may be the result of setting a placeholder value, then changing the s... [view]


Start screen is blank except for red bar

I’m having some trouble with the Report Builder program this morning. I just wanted to check-in with you to see if you might be able to help me figure out what is wrong. When I open the program I just get a white screen. When I move my mouse around a red bar appears as well as a path to some of o... [view]


Multi-var combine on string variable

1 comment(s)     Sep 19, 2016

Whenever we try to run “Multi-var combine” using a string variable, the program recognizes it as a numerical. To fix this, we have to go in and change the syntax so that Report Builder can know that we are working with a string variable, and not a numerical. Is there a way that the program can autom...

Sorting with N-Axis visible

1 comment(s)     Mar 9, 2016

When the N Axis is visible and is the innermost rows axis, sorting doesn't work the way you'd probably want it to work. Sometimes percents are first and sometimes frequencies are first. But really, it would be nice to leave the elements of the N Axis as-is, but sort using the outer axis, e.g. Meas... [view]


In a new project I’ve started, the values in the Edit Measures window for percents and frequencies are shown in descending order (from 5 to 1). Typically I’ve seen it in ascending order. Is this related to an update to RB? (Or, could I be working with an SPSS file that has a different way of mana... [view]


A user encountered a data file that caused RB to stick at 0% when trying to compute. After studying the file's binary data I discovered that it didn't specify the number of cases in the file. I'm not sure if the SPSS file specification requires that or not. The workaround was to open the file in ... [view]


RESOLVED. I discovered a small bug in RB when using weights. If you have a range defined with an empty upper or lower boundary (`‘null’` in the syntax below) weighted value will always show up as 0. pctinrange(Q1,1,null) However setting the max value to an actual number instead (in this ...

Filter using != (not equal to) is inverted

1 comment(s)     Nov 25, 2015

RESOLVED. If I use a filter to indicate that I want everything but a certain value, I’m finding that if I click on the filter again, the syntax will change so that my selection of the dataset becomes inverted from what I originally intended. So if I enter `rockstar!=1` in my filter syntax to... [view]

When I display markup for my groups, why does it show `[name]=[value]`? [view]
