I have just started with version 21 and I have run into a major issue.
Merge is no longer the MATCH CASES command. It is now STAR JOIN. There is something different that this command is doing. When merging, the command just stops when it runs into a keyed variable that has no match in the other data set. It should just show up as missing since there is no match in the other file but it stops the process and doesn't match anything else.
Does anyone know what STAR JOIN is actually doing and why it does not complete the command?
SPSS version 21
