Subject: need basic reference
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I'm new to this list and need some basic guidance. I've been using the
newer versions of SPSS with 'point & click' functions for analysis. Now
I find that I need to learn how to write some syntax commands in order
to work with large database files prior to analysis. Can anyone suggest
a basic reference (with examples) on "how-to" write SPSS syntax? I am
aware of the SPSS Syntax Reference book ...what do you think of this for
a beginner? Are there any that are more simple to use?
Thanks for any help.
