I have a small data file, created in EpiData 3.1 on Windows XP.  It
consists of 7 records and 8 variables.

I load the data into Analysis version 1.1 build 68.

I use the command line editor to issue DESCRIBE * command, and I get
descriptive summaries of all variables, including the variable called

But when I issue the command DESCRIBE AMOUNT, I get an error message:
Invalid floating point operation
