More precisely, you have to open another SESSION, and this way you would be
able to keep two different data files open at the same time, each with its
own output viewer. You cannot open a second data file within the same
session. Just start SPSS and open one data file. Then just go back to the
SPSS entry in your Start menu, or the SPSS icon on your desktop, and click
on it to start a second session. You can start a third and a fourth one, if
you wish (RAM and virtual memory permitting).
