    Hi, two days ago I was using SPSS Custom Tables. Yesterday I logged back in and tried to use custom tables on the same data set but the dialog box did not appear. I can see it in the menu but I can get it to open. I rebooted, restarted, unplugged all monitors but it still won't work today. Any thoughts on how I can get custom tables to start working again?

    Sometimes a dialog gets off screen, especially if you have multiple monitors. If you are on Winows, try this. Use the menu to theoretically open the dialog. Then do Alt+spacebar. That should bring up the System menu, and you can click Move and use the cursor keys to move it back into view.

    Alternatively you can use Window > Reset Dialogs and Positions.

    Hi, I have this same issue. The mentioned solution doesn't work for me. Other dialog windows do open, it is only for custom tables that it doesn't run.

    What OS are you using?  MS preempted the alt+spacebar gesture in Win 11, but you can do shift+right click on the SPSS Taskbar icon to bring up the system menu for the active window and then use Move to get it back on screen.

    Another possibility is to click the TaskView icon; then right click on an SPSS window and choose from the menu that appears.
