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 <paste>. 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>.
