Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
Do you see “IBM SPSS Statistics processor is ready” at the lower right corner? If not, please use the authorization code to license SPSS. For example, run the SPSS License Authorization Wizard, Go to: Start-> All Programs-> IBM SPSS Statistics-> IBM SPSS Statistics 22 License Authorization Wizard enter the authorization code (a 20-character, alphanumeric code with lowercase letters a through f and numerals 0 through 9) 

Another option is try enabling unicode. Either via Options – Language or open a new syntax and run: set unicode = on. show unicode.

    @ankit3302,

    Check whether the data include any special characters. Also it is necessary to know how did the data imported, either from excel/ text file etc.).

    If you have set the coding using Unicode, it is needed to import by enabling Unicode.
