Subject: Re: var comp
SPSS has a default maximum memory utilization of 14 MB, which
can be overridden using the SET command. For example, if you
want to allocate 60 MB, open a syntax window, type in
and run this syntax. The default is reinstated each time the
program is started. You can use
to see how much is available with current settings.
