Patricia, regarding solely your last question, namely: "Should we still hold off on upgrading from 12 to 14 - why", I can only think of one valid reason: wait for version 15, which is already in the works (finishing beta testing). Hector

Below Marc mentioned being able to with multiple datasets. What is meant by datasets. Multiple flat files / txt files multiple tables in ONE database (table1a & table2b in Oracle1) Multiple tables in two databases (table1a in Oracle1 & table2b in Oracle2) Multiple table in two types of databases (table1a in Oracle1 & table2d in Access2003) Those above plus something else?

Has SPSS 14 become more compatible with prior versions? Should we still hold off on upgrading from 12 to 14 - why
