Using SPSS Statistics

Opening Files

  1. In SPSS, one can open 4 different file types, Data, Syntax, Output, and Script. However, the process for opening these files is similar for all. If opening a data file, go to File -> Open -> Data, and for syntax, go to File -> Open -> Syntax, etc. SPSS opens files from your Citrix/My Documents folder from within your SSS by default.
    1. If your files are on the Academic server, click on the Look in: menu and select Academic Drive (K:) from the dropdown menu.
    2. If your file is on SSS somewhere other than your Citrix/My Documents folder, then click on the Look in: menu and select [username]$ (\\sss). For faculty, substitute (\\sss) with (\\ess).
    3. If your files are on your local computer, click on the Look in: menu and select Local Disk (C: on [computer name]) from the drop-down menu. If you are presented with a prompt asking how you want to access files on the mapped drive, select Read & Write. Then select the Users folder. Click on the folder with your username, and then select the folder you would like to access from your local computer.
  2. Navigate to the desired file and click Open.


 

Saving Files
