     Could someone help me on how to use the select cases option. Let's say I 
want to select out the males for analysis. I click on Data and on Select Cases. 
I'm assuming I want to use a filter variable and would put SEX into the box to 
the right of use filter variable. But then what? When I click on OK I don't see 
any indication that it has selected out the males. If I run a frequency 
distribution for SEX I still get both males and females. SPSS will put a line 
through the row number for the cases that have been filtered out but PSPP 
doesn't. Thanks. 

It works for me.  Which version of PSPP are you running?  Perhaps you
are running an old version.

What I do is:

1. Data|Select Cases
2. Then I put the "sex" variable in the box labeled "Use Filter Variable"
3. Then click OK

and you will see in the data sheet that all the males (or females if your coding
is the other way around) have a diagonal line on the column header button.
