I have not had that problem using the current release. You can check the 
version of Analysis under the help menu. When you SAVEDATA, Analysis 
does create the corresponding .chk along with any new label values you 
created for the new variables. You should be saving to a different file 

What you can do if you continue to have this problem is to manually copy 
the .chk for the original file to a new .chk that matches the file 
created with SAVEDATA.
