Mark's advice about pasting the tables as objects is nice, but notice
that the objects are not editable in Word. Exporting to HTML and then to
Word (albeit via Excel if you find that easier) leaves you with a Word
table that you can edit at your heart's content. I usually find this
superior to editing in SPSS and exporting the output as an object.
Though I admit it is a highly debatable matter that is better left to
