There is currently no dialog box to generate the syntax for the mann-whitney 

However, this need not be a problem.  Simply open a new syntax window and type 
copy paste) the syntax below.    Then select Run | All.

     I'm not sure that I understand you.? Your original question was about the 
Mann-Whitney U test, 
     which PSPP provides as a subcommand to the NPAR tests command.
     For example, if you have a variable called X and another called G and G 
has dichotomous
     valus 1 and 2, then a command like
     /MANN-WHITNEY = X BY G (1,2).
     will perform the mann-whitney test using the null hypothesis that the 
subsamples of X defined by
     the values 1 and 2 of G come from the same sample.
