Subject: [SPSSX-L] Syntax and pull down menu
Is there a way to trace back from syntax command to pull down menu
steps. My questions are:
(1) Is this possible?
(2). If the answer is yes, then how to do the following syntax by pull
match files file ='c:\temp\indv.sav'/table = 'c:\temp\org.sav'/ by
The purpose of this command is to move the second level aggregated score
from org.sav file to each individual in the first level file indv.sav.
It is so simple by one line of syntax command, but regular, non-syntax
users may feel easier by pull down menu click.
Your help is appreciated.
