To clarify, is the expression that you are typing in to the text field
(type=0) & (sales>100).
(type=0) & (sales>100)
? The only difference between the two is that the first has a period on
the end and gives the warning message you describe; the second doesn't and

what's wrong with this expression?
"SPSSX(r) Discussion" <SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU>
I am working thru the Help tutorial on hierarchical cluster analysis. In
the step on preparing the data (select cases if), I entered the
following example syntax (type=0) & (sales>100). into the text field
but when I click on continue I get the message "The expression is
incomplete. Check for missing operands, invalid operators, unmatched
parentheses or excessive string lengths". I tried cutting and pasting
from the example, I tried (type=0 & sales>100). based on an example in
the syntax ref guide, and I tried entering it using the GUI entirely and
not the keyboard. Same error.
Thanks in advance,
