Subject:      Macintosh Macros

Some time ago, a poster requested help in running macros using SPSS 6.1 for the Power Macintosh. The advice from SPSS was to place the macro close to the desktop so as to minimise the length of the path name. I think I have a better solution. As I understand it, the INCLUDE command, which is used to boot a macro, is written to the journal file. On a hunch, I moved the cancorr macro to the area on my Mac where the journal file is kept--the SPSS folder in the Preferences folder in the System folder--and, voila, the macro ran beautifully. I don't know whether there is any logic to my solution, or whether it is serendipity, but it works. Any comment on the validity of my procedure from SPSS would be appreciated.

Hope this has helped someone.
