If you just want to perform analyses for each split, use the SPLIT FILES command, as Art recommended. You can have all the splits in the same table or get separate tables per split.

If you need to make a separate sav file for each split, take a look at the XSAVE transformation command. You can put that inside DO IF logic.

I want to split a file using one split variable with 18 different values. But what I specifically want is to split that file into 18 (sub)files, using that split variable.

In your experience, which is the best / fastest way to do that?

Thank you in advance.
