Opening a Data File Click on FILE => OPEN => DATA Scroll over to FREFIELD and double click on it. 2 Changing a Cel l Value Suppose we wished to change the circled value to 23. Move to that cell. Enter the 23 and press ENTER. The new value appears in the cell. It is as simple as that. 3 I nserting a Case Suppose we wished to insert a case after the seventh subject.

2. There are spaces between the variables, but there are several cases on each line. 1 Situation 1 : Free Format-Each Line Represents a Case To illustrate this situation we use the Ambrose data (Exercise 12 from chapter 4). 5. , simply click on NEXT. Notice in Step 3 that each line represents a case, and that we are importing all the cases. In Step 4 we indicate which delimiter(s) appears between the variables. Since in this case there is a space between each variable, this is checked. Step 4 shows how the data will look.

For example, if it is an EXCEL file (stored in MY DOCUMENTS), then one would select MY DOCUMENTS and EXCEL for file type. The TEXT IMPORT WIZARD (described on pp. 43-53) of the above SPSS guide is very nice for reading in-text files. We describe two data situations and how one would use the TEXT WIZARD to read the data. The two situations are: 1. There are spaces between the variables (free format), but each line represents a case. 2. There are spaces between the variables, but there are several cases on each line.
