FW: PSPP output

Thank you for your advice.  I found the HTML to have the most pleasing output, and it copies reasonably into email.  However, I would have expected a text file to be the easiest to use, but this was not the case.  In the PSPP Viewer the result of a LIST command presents data neatly in columns.  However, when Export is used to send the View output to a text file, the result is that the list headings are repeated following (almost) every data line.  Which is not a desired format.


What you have said is a nice workable solution, but it would be good if output to text could work as well.

please try the file-> export'll save the whole output in a format of your choosing (pdf,csv,odt,html etc); but if you are trying to copy only a portion of the output, i am not sure how to do that.

I am having trouble gaining access to PSPP output.


I’m using PSPP in a Windows XP environment (PSPPIRE.exe 0.7.9-g4380b2).  I have created command files with names such as NAT80gen.sps.  Double-clicking on a command file invokes PSPP which allows me to run the command file (eg.  Run>All).  Upon completion, an Output window opens listing the code I have used and its subsequent output.  I would like to use the output but seem to have limited options in copying the text.


I’m having trouble selecting text from the Viewer.  Can you please provide some guidance?  I have found that the Edit>Select All function selects only some text from the Viewer window, and when pasted into an editor the format changes.  For example, the output of the frequencies function copies and pastes perfectly fine, but the output from the list function does not retain the same output format.


I would like to be able to copy and paste any and all the output from a PSPP run into an editor.  Where might I be going wrong?


Thanks,  Ron
