Subject: Re: Object failed in selecting 7.5 output
Bill: Here is a technical note from our support database
which addresses this problem and details how you can
resolve it. If the problem survives this re-setting of
the SPSS registry, please contact us at SPSS Technical
Support with further information on your system resources.
SPSS Technical Support
When we try to edit a pivot table in
SPSS for Windows 7.5 Output Navigator, we
get the message: "Failed to create object.
Make sure the object is entered in the
system registry." What is happening?
SPSS pivot table objects have not been
correctly entered into the registry.
To fix this problem follow these steps
in this order:
1) Close SPSS. Go to directory where
SPSS is installed and double-click on the
file called "regpurge.bat". This may take
a minute or two to run, after it finishes
you can close the window. (**Please note:
running this file "regpurge.bat" will
re-set all your preferences, like default
Table Looks and Toolbar customizations.)
2) In the SPSS directory, double-click on
the file called "newuser.bat". This should
take a second to run, after it finishes
close the window.
3) In Windows 95, go to the Start button,
then Run the following command:
(**Note: You want to substitute the correct path
where you have SPSS installed. In this example
the path it c:\Program~1\SPSS which actually
stands for c:\Program Files\SPSS which is the
default installation directory. If you have
it installed in Program Files you want to type
it as Progra~1 like this example.)
4) In the SPSS directory, double-click on the
file called "rereg75.bat".
