Thanks very much for the quick answer, Jon.
It was such a stupid mistake:
I wrote the program in R directly, and since there the package I wanted to
use had been loaded by default, I did not need to use the library()
So when I copied the syntax into SPSS, the library() call was missing...
I guess this is the type of mistake, you don't forget...
