Does anyone know what the STAR JOIN command is doing in SPSS version 21? It is the new MERGE files command and I am having trouble with it. When a case from the active data set contains a value that is not in the keyed data set it just stops at that case and will not finish the command. With MATCH FILES it would just show up as missing if it is only in one file. Any insight would be helpful.

Software/Hardware used:
