Double-click in the fields where you see "1" instead of "1.359" or "1.334", respectively. Or, highlight the respective fields and tell SPSS that you want to have three numbers displayed after the decimal point.

No, this wasn't solved!

The SPSS setting was three numbers displayed after the decimal point but It shows "1" again :|
