Filter doesn't apply to all correlation tables

Discuss statistics related things

I have a data set with 59 observations and an ordinal variable "class" with three values (1, 3 and 4), that have 19, 18 and 22 observations each.
I also have 6 variables from a Likert scale (0-4), labeled E_U, E_I, E_H and L_U, L_I, L_H, and I want to find the respective Spearman correlations.

At first, I created a correlation table with all six variables across all observations (i.e., no filters). Then (because I only need three of these values) I created three correlation tables that show the Spearman correlation between only E_U and L_U, between E_I and L_I, and between E_H and L_H.

Next, I applied the Filter "class == 1", to search for the correlation coefficients among the subsample of size 19 where class = 1.
However, only the first two tables get updated. When ticking "N" in the correlation table's setup, the value in the table changes from N=59 to N=19, and the correlations change. The other two tables, however, stay unchanged, with N=59.

I cannot remember having set up the tables differently. What could be the reason for the filter being applied to only some of the tables? How can I change this setting and make the filter apply to all four correlation tables?

Thank you very much,

hi rosenresli,

could you first up check that you're using the most recent version (1.2.16), and see if the issue still occurs.

if it does, can you provide a .omv file which does this? (you can either attach it here, it might need to be zipped up first, or you can email it to contact <at>

with thanks
