When you set up the GUI dialog, press "paste" (and NOT "OK") and the syntax window should appear and your syntax should be pasted into it.  You can then edit that window to add the required options and then click Run > All.

I am sorry to be so ignorant (I am a user and not a programmer). I don't know how to find the syntax window. Can some kind soul tell me where to look? Please treat me as a complete novice with this programme.

Thank you

Yes,  you have the latest version.

You are right, there is no dialog box for the charts option, but the subcommands
are implemented.  You can enter the syntax in the syntax window and achieve the
result you want.  Either type the whole command, or append the subcommand to the
syntax generated by the dialog.  See Section 15.3 of the manual.

     Dear Sirs,

     I am using release no. 0.8.4-g5ce6b1

     It is running on Windows 7 on a 64 bit computer.

     I am trying to examine the difference in the score range between two groups
     - male and female in the sample. The statistics are calculated, but there
     is no prompt to choose a chart type. The 'PLOT' command is missing from the
     sub commands. Do I have the latest version?

     Many thanks
