Dear John

I did not assume that there was an error in the dataset or syntax, as my 
colleague is relying on the PSPP User Manual and the procedure is very simple. 
However, I had assumed that other users might have experienced similar issues 
and that rather, the problem was with PSPP.  Is this not a possibility?

Best wishes

Could you perhaps post the dataset and the syntax you used, which provokes this

     I would value advice on output which was sent to me from calculating 
Cohen's simple Kappa using PSPP. The output demonstrates the following:
     a)      a discrepancy between the standard errors calculated by  PSPP and 
SPSS (0.07 versus 0.088, respectively)
     b)      an empty cell under the label 'Approx sig.' in PSPP by contrast 
with the occurrence of the value '.000' in the corresponding cell for SPSS.
     Can anyone explain any of these anomalies, please?
     Best wishes
