Example text

This command has two main purposes: to specify the names, types, and locations of variables within the file, also known as specifying the file layout; and if an external file is used, to identify its location. READING INLINE DATA Data included in a syntax file are known as inline data. The commands BEGIN DATA and END DATA are used to read inline data, as demonstrated in the following example: DATA LIST / ID 1-3 (A) Score1 5-7 Score2 9-11. BEGIN DATA 001 100 99 002 86 88 003 93 89 END DATA. LIST VAR = ALL.

If a period is included within a comment, for instance, when specifying a file name, it must be enclosed in quotes so SPSS does not interpret it as a command terminator. sps’ includes the syntax for chapter 8 of the SPSS book. * It was written by Sarah Boslaugh; begun 08-10-2003; last updated 3-26-2004. Comments may also be included on command lines, in which case the comment is set between the symbols /* and */. ) comes after the comment, as in the following example: IF hsgrad = 1 AND sex = 1 fhs = 1 /*Female High School graduates*/.

Sections of syntax or entire programs can be reused or modified. For instance, you may need to produce a standard report on a regular basis, a task easily accomplished by running the same basic syntax each time a report is needed. Similarly, syntax adding value labels to one data file may be applied to another file. 3. Most syntax will run on any installation of SPSS, while the menu system varies across versions and operating systems. 4. Syntax is an important means of communication among SPSS users.
