Try the attached .sav file.  Split on the values of the variable ven3,
which separates data with ven = 3 from data with ven not= 3.  Then do a
crosstab on any pair of variables, e.g,
gender vs zipcode.  One of  the two results will report the wrong number
of missing entries and the wrong number of total entries.  Which one is
wrong will depend on the ordering of the data.   The total should be 178
for venue 3 and 68 for all other venues combined.  The total number of
entries independent of venue is 246.

I also attached a file showing the ou tpu t I got for age vs zipcode,
and I indicated in that file where the numbers reported were wrong.
