I sometimes need to compare very large datasets with up to thousands of variables, and while I've found that Compare Datasets option in SPSS 22 (or 20 onwards AFAIR) works nicely for comparisons in general, for these big datasets there's one issue. The issue I have with it, is that it produces huge tables for the comparison, and it's still quite slow to find the changes from the long list of zeroes. Also, the case listing of changes has mostly empty columns, so finding the variables with any changes from the table is quite difficult still.
What I'm asking is: is there any way of automatically removing the zero rows or the empty columns from the output?
I've tried looking at the style output dialog, as well trying to figure out OMS, but I haven't been able to find any solution to my problem, hopefully someone here could help me.
