You need to describe what you are trying to do.

For example, I had three different files containing the same variables (on different samples). I had already created SPSS SAV files.

The follow code combined them into a single database:

ADD FILES /FILE="G:\IIT\nsf_ethics_grant\analyses\2012-06\Ethics_Survey_STEM_participants.SAV"

In the code you refer to, the square brackets [] denote optional commands and you would only use them if you knew what they do. And if you did need those optional parts of the commands, you would NOT include the square braces themselves.

Thanks J'.
I found the syntax in manual as this:

  Per input file:
Once per command:
              /BY var_list[({D|A})] [var_list[({D|A}]]...

Frankly there are a few instruction that i don't really understand but i
tried to do it by i. opening all 3 files ii. Open - New file -> Syntax, then
I put this command:


iii. and press Run.
I know this is wrong, but i don't know how to make it right. Could someone
please give me some advise? This is 3 files has the exact variables. Thank
you very much.
