Hello,

I am receiving an error message:
*** ERROR
One or more variables have a variance greater than the maximum allowed of 1000000.
Check your data and format statement or rescale the variable(s) using the DEFINE command.

However, the data looks fine. What do others recommend I do next?

I am happy to send the syntax!

Check that you read the data correctly. For instance, use the Savedata command to save the analyzed data and check that you get what you expected.

Thanks. I have a new issue now --

*** WARNING
Data set contains unknown or missing values for GROUPING,
PATTERN, COHORT, CLUSTER and/or STRATIFICATION variables.
Number of cases with unknown or missing values: 188

I have specified MISSING ALL (-999), does this not apply immediately for the GROUPING command?
