Hi,
It is indeed confusing. User guide (version 0.8.4) writes:

`"More than one table can be specified in a single command. Each table is
``separated by a ‘/’. For example
`MEANS TABLES =
c d e BY x
/a b BY x y
/f BY y BY z.

`has three tables (the ‘TABLE =’ is optional). The first table has three
``dependent variables c, d and e and a single categorical variable x. The
``second table has two dependent variables a and b, and two categorical
``variables x and y. The third table has a single dependent variables f
``and a categorical variable formed by the combination of y and z." (p. 139)
`

`The emphasis is on the third table. PSPP produces two tables for means
``of f by y and mean of f by x, rather than one for mean f by combination
``of y and z.
``SPSS *can* do it. I have attached two sample outputs. One for PSPP, and
``one for SPSS.
`It would be very useful to resolve this issue.
Cheers,
Zoltan

Hi,
I want to produce a table of means with 2 controls:
var1
total
var2
level 1
level 2
level 1
level 2
Total
grand mean
The dependent is coded 0 and 1 so that the cell entries easily provide
percentages.
I thought that
MEANS DV1 by var by var2
would do the trick.
But I get 3 separate tables
DV1 by Var1
DV1 by Var2
DV1 (table with Grand mean).
Does MEANS allow to do what I want (or another procedure) ?
TIA
