The easiest way to do this is to use Production Mode. Look up Running production jobs from a command line in the Help.

You can also use external mode Python programmability to create a batch job that can be used with cron or AT.

Is it possible to start and execute an SPSS-Syntax file automatically. As far as I know a cron-job just starts the file but does not execute the SPSS-commands.
