Hi Craig, You might be able to try dragging the file into a Terminal window which will automatically complete the full file path. In SPSS however, your best bet is to turn on PRINTBACK, open the file the through the GUI, then copy the command that's written to the output file and paste it into a syntax window.


set printback on.

<do your thing.>

set printback off.

for PRINTBACK via the GUI

Edit Menu | Options... | Viewer | check the 'Display commands in the log' option

In the Syntax Editor, is there a way to point and click on a file name to enter it automatically into a path name? I tried entering the path name manually but didn't work but I would think we should be able to point and click. Thanks for suggestions, -- R.
