Data Split Output is blank

Postby DrSeuss » Fri May 22, 2015 6:50 am

I have three columns - The first is the group (3 groups) the following 2 are the variables. I am attempting to do a data split, but when I run it the output is blank.

Data - split file - groups - compare groups (instruction I was given by my Phd supervisor)

Output Log says:

GET
FILE='C:\Users\Sharon\Desktop\MyFiles\Phd\Studies\March 2014\Results\PS1.sav'.
DATASET NAME DataSet1 WINDOW=FRONT.
SORT CASES BY Group.
SPLIT FILE LAYERED BY Group.

you still need a command after this, this syntax only indicates that whatever you are going to do will be separate by group afterwards.
also, this is assuming there is an actual variable called "group"
