Hi Lisa,

* Generate a syntax for writing the data from every row (use commands like compute and write; the syntax itself should contains write commands too, I think);

* include the syntax.

Another possible way is to create a macro with a !DO loop. Or, finally, use a script.

As an example, you can use my posting to the theme "Splitting in the number of files as there are number of values in varible x" from May 7th. (Archive of this discussion group is on Or use appropriate syntax files from Raynald's pages, e.g. .

Hi All

Please can I have some advice on creating a syntax file. I have a .sav file containing 2,700 rows of data and from this I would like to output 2,700 .csv files (one for each row/school).

What would be the best way of doing this?

Thanks Lisa
