Staffan, I am unsure of how to center a chart/table, but I figured out how to get rid of the page number. I'm using SPSS 11.5 (not the tables module, but I'm guessing you'll have the same options available).

Once your output comes up click on the print preview icon Click page setup Click options A window will open up with "Header/Footer" in the front and "Options" behind it, put your cursor inside the "Footer" section of the window. Text will appear that reads "Page & [Page]" Delete that text if you want nothing printed there, or replace it with Sida 1(Sida 2, Sida 3....).

It seems you have to do this for every page you print; it will not automatically number the pages once you delete the "Page & [Page]" line. I even tried typing that back in and it printed it just like that, instead of printing "Page 1". I also tried inserting "Sida & [Sida]", and that did not work either.....but I'm no expert, so there may a more advanced way to do this; I just figured this out by fiddling with it, and I'm glad I did...that page 1 drove me nuts!

You can also change the justification to left/right/center from this window, and if you want the page number at the top, put your cursor inside the header section, instead of footer.

Hope this helps,

Hi listers !

I'm struggling to learn the new Tables module in SPSS 11.5.1. I've not found a solution to 2 seemingly trivial problems (not chez Ray either). These were easily fixed in 6.1.4 that I've mostly used up to now, but here I'm at a loss:

1. How do I center a table on a page in the viewer? I always get it at the top of a page and am unable to insert extra line breaks.

2. How do I control the page numbering ? I always get it at the bottom right corner but sometimes I don't want it at all and other times I want it in the upper right corner. I would also sometimes want to substitute the word "Page" with the Swedish translation "Sida".

Are there ways to accomplish this ?
