I know see what you mean, I need to write syntax to do the merge. I was
assuming it would be in the drop downs somewhere, like in SPSS. Gonna
have to read the manual to make sense on how to do it.

As for the copy/paste, even in the 0.7.5-g70514b compile for Windows, I
can not copy/paste 100%. I can only do one cell at a time. I need to
copy a whole column, of 516 records, but when I do that, it pastes them
all into which ever cell I click on in the other file. Even if I
highlight multiple cells, it will still just paste it into the first

The merge command is called MATCH FILES and so far as I know is
identical to SPSS.
See the manual for details.

Likewise, a copy/paste should also work.  However since PSPP doesn't
currently support multiple datasets, it would be necessary to start two
instances of PSPP and copy between them.

     the Merge utility and everything worked fine. I do not see that

     I tried doing a simple copy/paste, but that too does not work...
     Any other suggestion on how I can get variable 1 from file A to
     1 file B?
