IBM SPSS Statistics Syntax II (0G416G)
This intermediate course is for a natural follow-on to the introductory SPSS Statistics Syntax I course and is for experienced users wishing to become proficient syntax programmers.
You should have:
- A knowledge of syntax on the level of SPSS Statistics Syntax I, experience in using syntax and a feeling for programming.
This syntax course focuses on powerful data transformations (only available in syntax - not in the GUI) and on automation. For automation, the two main topical areas are Macros and the Production Facility. The Macro language is discussed in detail, with examples showing how Macros can make your syntax more efficient, more transparent and easier. The discussion of the Production Facility shows how syntax files can be scheduled in the Windows environment (the same applies to other operating systems).
