I did not explained myself properly.
I am referring to the SPSS equivalent of the JOIN command that it is used for 
At my company we use SPSS to join different data sources using a common key 
You can join 2 data files using one of them as a lookup table, or join records 
from both data files.
Hope that this clarifies what I have meant.

Not aware of this.
Any chance that you'll add a nice GUI menu for it? :-)
