In earlier versions of SPSS CROSSTABS hat an option to write data into file
(with WRITE) which could be read back to a SPSS file with the standard input
features (used in the times of FORTRAN and maybe somewhat strange to
ODBC-Users). I hope this possibility still exists. I think there is no
straight forward possibilty to to such things with TABLES. But you certainly
can produce tables output as "classical" standard ascii output, that can be
used in a similiar way.
There are some things I don't like about the new TABLES: Their layout is far
from perfect and the possibilty to customize the format is very limited.
Some formatting options have been stripped off when TABLES output was moved
tho the pivot system. Now it seems to be impossible to have overlapping row
labels. Any row-variable label is written left to the value labels (not in
the column head as one would expect). So all tables are extremly wide and
you can only fit them on a page if you use a very small font. (or you have
to copy each important table to EXCEL and do the formatting there).
