I have just installed SPSS 16 and Python 2.5 with several modules and plug-ins.

I have then tried this very interesting piece of code (slightly adapted from Jon Peck's Programmability slides I have downloaded from HYPERLINK ""

GET FILE "C:\Programmi\SPSSInc\SPSS16\Samples\Employee data.sav". BEGIN PROGRAM. import spss, tables cmd=r"""CTABLES /TABLE JOBCAT BY GENDER /TITLES TITLE='JOB CATEGORY BY GENDER' /COMPARETEST TYPE=PROP""" tables.mergeLatest(cmd, autofit=False) END PROGRAM.

Unfortunately I get the following error:

This module requires pythoncom and win32com.client modules, which can be downloaded from Be sure to get the Python 2.4 version. Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 2, in <module> File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\", line 130, in <module> import spss, viewer, sys File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\", line 47, in <module> import pythoncom, win32com.client File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\", line 2, in <module> import pywintypes File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\", line 102, in <module> __import_pywin32_system_module__("pywintypes", globals()) File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\", line 64, in __import_pywin32_system_module__ import _win32sysloader ImportError: No module named _win32sysloader

Please notice that I have uploaded the python client modules, and it looks like the more module I add the more there are other modules needed...

Can anyone assist me on this one?
