I wanted to calculated Median (all descriptive stats in Frequencies.

I put my two vars into the box and pressed enter. Median was "6" for both vars. This is an error.

I tried to do it again, but this time one-by-one variable, separately. This time was the right value the median --- 13.50 and 6.00 for each variable, respectively.

I dont know what is happening.
