Subject: Modifying correlation output to waste less space
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I have been doing some correlations where I do a Split file command then
Correlations. My question is whether anyone has any practical tricks or
scripts to make the output more compact. Printing on 8.5x11 portrait
orientation i get TWO columns of correlations per page. When i look at the
printed page, i see red. I find this appalling!!
I currently have Edit-->Options-->Pivot Table set to display variable names
and label. Changing this would probably get an additional column. However,
changing that option would, i believe, also cause display names and labels
to not be displayed on Frequencies. I find them informative there and want
to keep them. The correlation columns' width is about right to display an
eight character variable name without wrapping, so narrowing those seems out
of the question. I know i could gain another column by forgetting the Split
files command and using a Temporary/Select if arrangement.
The only thing i can think of is to either modify the existing correlation
script somehow or to use a custom script to modify the output to be more
compact. Others of you must have been annoyed by this. Have you found
anything to change to get more space? Is a custom script the only answer?
Has anyone written one that they would be willing to share?
