  • 1.  Invalid Extra Data Field Size Error

    Posted Tue February 06, 2024 09:48 AM

    Has anyone gotten an error like the one below? I got it when trying to run my Temporal Causal forecasting model code (that has worked in the past). I also get the same error when I try to run it from the menus. Any help is much appreciated!  #SPSSStatistics

    Hi @Amanda Felbab,

    I was just Googling for your error message and it seems like this might be related to the version of the JRE used by your version of SPSS Statistics.

    • What release of IBM SPSS Statistics are you using (and on which platform)?
    • IBM SPSS Statistics 29.0.2.0 will have our latest JRE.  If you can, please update to this release and let us know if the problem persists.

    Thank you for your response! I already have this version of SPSS installed. Any other ideas?

    Hi @David Dwyer-

    Do you have any other ideas on this one? I am already using v. 29.0.2.0 on Windows. I'm still getting this error. This time with a completely different dataset! Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi @Amanda Felbab

    Just going off of the error message (which I have never seen before), and assuming you have a clean/uncorrupted install of Statistics 29.0.2.0 (20), I would have to say there is something wrong with your data or perhaps something wrong with your model file.

    To confirm your successful installation of Statistics 29.0.2.0 Are you able to follow along in this Case Study and obtain the documented results?

    @David Dwyer - I really appreciate the quick response! So interestingly, the sample file fails even sooner... I am getting this error when I try to assign the Date/Time field. 

    Cannot open container C:\Users\afelbab\AppData\Local\Temp\spss17328\af\director\18ea431c85c-76d57b9a4a199488\.containers\descriptives-descriptives\PMML C:\Users\afelbab\AppData\Local\Temp\spss17328\af\director\18ea431c85c-76d57b9a4a199488\.containers\descriptives-descriptives\PMML

    Note: other procedures, such as descriptives, automatic linear modeling, Factor Analysis, etc., seem to work just fine with this file.

    Hi @Amanda Felbab
    Thank you for that error message!  It does look like something I have seen before in the context of SURVREG AFT and SURVREG RECURRENT.  I have added your scenario to the existing defect.  Please subscribe to Known Issue DT270249 to be updated when this issue. (and hopefully your issue) are resolved.
