Just split the file based on that variable.

SORT CASES BY "your variable" . SPLIT FILE SEPARATE BY "your variable" .

Any analysis that you do will be done to both groups seperately. If you want to compare the results of the odd numbers to the even numbers, an independent t-test would work IF the data types are appropriate. If you want to do this, you need to undo the split.

I have what I think should be a simple bit of syntax to write but the logic is escaping me. I will be sending out 800 surveys numbered 1 to 800. Odd numbered surveys will be going to one respondent category, even numbers to a second categy. I know I should be able to write syntax that puts the odd numbers into one group and the evens into the second group but I'm stumped. Any help?

Thanks much. Tony
