No. You are not required to enter anything in the factor list.

Stick any old variable in the "Factor List" box, and then exit the GUI via
PASTE. The pasted syntax will look something like this:
EXAMINE VARIABLES=V1 V2 V3 BY SomeFactor
Just delete the "BY SomeFactor" bit, then run it.
This reminds me of Art Kendall's frequent advice about using the GUI to
generate a "first draft" of one's syntax. It also provides a nice
illustration of why syntax is essential. You can't get there via the GUI
