Hi Daniel,

If you have two-tailed p-values:

COMPUTE zscore=IDF.NORMAL(1-pvals/2,0,1).

If you have one tailed p-values:

COMPUTE zscore=IDF.NORMAL(1-pvals,0,1).

(This method doesn't work inside a MATRIX program, BTW).

DC> Does anyone know if SPSS can convert a given p-value into z-score? I search DC> the listserv and found a solution using Microsoft Excel. However, I really DC> prefer to do this in SPSS. Does anybody know how to do this in SPSS?

Regards, Marta
