Subject: Re: Running syntax [*.sps] from within another syntax file
- how to do?
Thanks for this Melissa - when I try it I run into the following
problems - any suggestions?
I want to open file store1.sav and run the StandardiseFileFormats.sps
This syntax files run perfectly if the GUI is used. I start with no sav
Get File = 'C:\MyDocs\Chuck\GamePricing\store1.sav'.
Insert file = 'C:\MyDocs\Chuck\GamePricing\StandardiseFileFormats.sps'
SYNTAX=BATCH ERROR=STOP CD=YES ENCODING='UTF8'.
