This adresses your question 2) below.

The following is a simple example:


The above syntax saves the following info to the spss file "OLS param.sav": - covariance matrix of the 3 IV's - coefficients of the model - SE of the coefficients - SIG and Degrees of Freedom

That file can then be loaded back in SPSS or exported to text file by SPSS.

THis is the content of the file "OLS param.sav": depvar_ rowtype_ varname_ const_ educ jobtime prevexp SALARY COV CONST_ 30575136 -578502 -268251 -6972.12 SALARY COV EDUC -578502 44364.28 -612.27 308.98 SALARY COV JOBTIME -268251 -612.27 3415.30 -5.24 SALARY COV PREVEXP -6972.12 308.98 -5.24 33.68 SALARY EST -27886.3 4004.58 87.95 11.94 SALARY SE 5529.48 210.63 58.44 5.80 SALARY SIG .00 .00 .13 .04 SALARY DFE 470.00 470.00 470.00 470.00

For a more complicated example, see "Add casewise regression coefficients to data file.SPS" in s

In case a procedure does not export a given element of the results into a matrix or data file, it is always possible to write a script which picks up that information and save it to a text file.

-----Original Message----- From: SPSSX(r) Discussion [mailto:SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU]On Behalf Of Tasneem Jappie Sent: October 4, 2002 5:12 AM To: SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Subject:


I'm looking for relationships between measured values that we obtain during our manufacturing of optical fiber. I believe that there is a relationship between the Waterpeak, 1550 and 1310 values. There might be other relationships that I don't know of, and would like to know if they exist.

I would like to model the results of one of the two measuring machines: 1)Can SPSS link with SQL database and on a time basis do linear regression analysis?

2) I would like to use the coefficients generated by the regression, in a Visual Basic Program. Would it be possible to extract the coefficients out of SPSS? Does SPSS generate a Database file that I can open to extract the coefficients?

Thank you.
