Unless I just haven't come across it, one major drawback of using the
tutorials (which otherwise are very good) is that they do not show the
syntax that is generated.
They also reinforce the bad habit of ending a menu via <ok> rather than
That being said you might run through the procedures and for each menu
section <paste> the syntax. If you exit via <paste> you can go back to
the menu and usually (always?) the specifications are "sticky" so you
can then click <ok>.
Going through the menus does put the syntax in the journal.
SPSS should fix their tutorials to show the syntax
Put the <paste> button above the <ok> button. and/or have an <OK &
PASTE) button above the <ok> button and/or have an option in
preferences to have <ok> also <paste>.
