Do I need Complex Samples Module?

Hi - I'm looking to create a random sample from 16,000 school districts (already have data). I want to stratify by both student enrollment and state, and also to oversample one demographic variable to account for underrepresentation. Do I need the complex sample module to do this, or can I somehow accomplish with basic SPSS package? I've read extensively on this, and can see how to do one of these three things at at time, but not all three (and remain unsure about the oversampling - maybe just weighting will accomplish the goal)? I have v. 24.

Help much appreciated. Thank you!
