     Hello again.  Now that I'm getting the idea of entering data into PSPP, 
     I'm trying to do a one-way anova.  When I use the oneway command, I get 
     a syntax error.  What am I doing wrong?  The code is below.
     data list list /mood (a10) score *.
     begin data.
     good 18
     good 13
     good 11
     good 15
     good 15
     good 16
     bad 11
     bad 15
     bad 11
     bad 13
     bad 17
     bad 16
     end data.
     split file by mood.
     descriptives score.
     oneway /variables=good,bad by mood.

The variables listed before the BY keyword are the dependent variables, and 
those after it are the independent variables.     You're getting syntax errors, 
because "good" and "bad" are not variable names.

Therefore, in your example, I think you need to say:

ONEWAY /variables=score BY mood.

and if you want any sensible results, then you'll need to remove the 
split first.
