Open indv.sav file. Choose Data-->Merge Files-->Add Variables. In the 'An external SPSS data file' box enter (or browse for) the org.sav file Check the 'Match cases on Key Variables in sorted files', Choose 'Non-Active dataset is keyed table' Select 'orgid' in the Excluded Variables box and move it to the Key Variables box. (Make sure all variables you want to keep are in one of the boxes on the right side and make sure your datasets are both sorted by orgid.)

Select Paste and then run the pasted data OR seleck OK to run right away.


-----Original Message----- From: SPSSX(r) Discussion [mailto:SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU] On Behalf Of Bill Wu Sent: Monday, December 04, 2006 4:03 PM To: SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU 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 down menu?

match files file ='c:\temp\indv.sav'/table = 'c:\temp\org.sav'/ by orgid.

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.
