SPSS can certainly handle 100,000,000 million cases/records, although performance will obviously be affected by machine characteristics. On a 1.8 Ghz clock speed box with 1 Ghz of RAM, the following took a couple minutes:
loop var1=1 to 100000000.
end input program.

Subject: Limits on file size
I have a potential project that may require many millions of entries (maybe 100,000,000). I think I remember reading that an SPSS data file is theoretically only limited by the computer's memory, but does anyone have any experience with working with .sav files this big?
