Opening and Running a Syntax File

  1. To open a saved syntax file, from the menus choose:

    File > Open > Syntax...

    A standard dialog box for opening files is displayed.

  2. Select a syntax file. If no syntax files are displayed, make sure Syntax (*.sps) is selected as the file type you want to view.
  3. Click Open.
  4. Use the Run menu in the syntax window to run the commands.

If the commands apply to a specific data file, the data file must be opened before running the commands, or you must include a command that opens the data file. You can paste this type of command from the dialog boxes that open data files.
