Bivariate

Scroll down, highlight and transfer variables to Variables box:



Click on OK

Finally, in only the second example in the entire book, Pallant is forced to use syntax (and indirectly at that) to produce correlations of one set of variables with another set. In the above example, PASTE produces:





CORRELATIONS

/VARIABLES=tpcoiss tmast tposaff tnegaff tlifesat

/PRINT=TWOTAIL NOSIG

/MISSING=PAIRWISE .


…and she has to resort to syntax mode to insert with





CORRELATIONS

/VARIABLES=tpcoiss tmast tposaff with tnegaff tlifesat

/PRINT=TWOTAIL NOSIG

/MISSING=PAIRWISE .

…to produce:



which could just as easily have been produced by:





corr

tpcoiss tmast tposaff with tnegaff tlifesat

/pri nos.


Far better to stick to syntax or at least use PASTE. That way, if you make a mistake you can go (back) to the syntax file, check or amend it and run the job again with [CTRL]+R or RUN. You can’t do this with drop-down menus, except by recalling the dialog box, clicking on whichever set of procedures you were using and then amending the dialog box(es), but it would be nice to have a proper button (Undo doesn’t seem to work inside Data Editor).


After all that, I had to buy one of these!
