Sure, you can do it at once.
If you're using the menus:
Data --> Select Cases
Choose "If condition is satisfied"
In the box to the right of the variable list, type something like:
(startwrk = 1998) and (occupation = "dentist") and (married = "yes")
If you're typing the syntax:
COMPUTE filter_$=((startwrk = 1998) and (occupation = "dentist") and (married = "yes")).
FILTER BY filter_$.

Subject: Select Cases
When using 'Data' --> 'Select Cases', it seems that you can only select one
variable. Is there a way to simultaneously select up to three variables.
For example I want to select the people who started working in 1998, who
work in a particular occupation and who are married. Can I do it all at
once or do I have to select them one-at-a-time until I get to the cases I am
looking for? Any help would be appreciated.
