Assuming you have version 12, you can use OMS to export the result of the following command to a *.sav file:


The above also assumes that there are only numeric variables in the data file.

If you have both strings and numeric variable, you can use macro described in file#3 of to create a macro that contains only the list of numeric variables. You can then use that macro instead of the keyword ALL in the above syntax.
