Using SPSS Showcase with IBM DB2 on RISC box AIX OS


Hi. I recently purchased SPSS Showcase from IBM to use with my IBM RISC box with the OS of AIX. The database is IBM DB2. I installed the client on my local PC and setup an ODBC data source (IBM DB2). From QUERY, when I try to add a table I get the message, “Target data source does not support the specified number of name elements.” Does anyone know what that means? I’ve used Showcase many times in the past but connecting to an IBM iSeries DB2 database. Thanks. Jason


I can’t tell if this error is coming from Toad for Data Analysts or SPSS. I am assuming that you are connecting to some form of analytic type table/cube. To do so you will need to use the proprietary software.
