There are three possibilities that should come close.

1. If you have SPSS Statistics 17, take a look at the new built-in CODEBOOK command (on Analyze>Reports in the menus). You will have to see whether the layout suits your needs. The variable order can be as listed, file, or alphabetical.

2. If you are on SPSS 16, consider the CODEBOOK extension command. (Usable also with 17, but it needs renaming to avoid conflicting with the built-in command.) This extension command can be downloaded from SPSS Developer Central, www.spss.com/devcentral. It requires the Python programmability plug-in. It does not have a dialog box interface as the Custom Dialog Builder is a new feature of version 17.

3. If you have a very specific single table layout in mind or are on version 14 or 15, you would need to use programmability to construct a custom pivot table with that layout.

Dear list members,

I wonder how to make a syntax or macro to combine the output of discriptives and display variables. To put it more exactly: I would like an output with: Variable name, N, Minimum, Maximum, Mean, St deviation, Format and Missing Values. Furthermore this output should contain ALL variables in de SAME ORDER as in the datafile.

Any help will be highly appreciated!
