Experienced data analysts know that a successful analysis or meaningful report oftenrequires more work in acquiring, merging, and transforming data than in specifyingthe analysis or report itself. SPSS Statistics contains powerful tools for accomplishingand automating these tasks. While much of this capability is available through thegraphical user interface, many of the most powerful features are available only throughcommand syntax—and you can make the programming features of its command syntaxsigni
cantly more powerful by adding the ability to combine it with a full-featured programming language. This book offers many examples of the kinds of things thatyou can accomplish using command syntax by itself and in combination with other  programming language.
For SAS Users 
If you have more experience with SAS for data management, see Chapter 32 for comparisons of the different approaches to handling various types of data managementtasks. Quite often, there is not a simple command-for-command relationship betweenthe two programs, although each accomplishes the desired end.
This book re
ects the work of many members of the SPSS Inc. staff who havecontributed examples here and in Developer Central, as well as that of RaynaldLevesque, whose examples formed the backbone of earlier editions and remainimportant in this edition. We also wish to thank Stephanie Schaller, who providedmany sample SAS jobs and helped to de
ne what the SAS user would want to see, aswell as Marsha Hollar and Brian Teasley, the authors of the original chapter “SPSSStatistics for SAS Programmers.”
