I found out about /Variables command - /VARIABLES=var1(1,5) var2(1,5). However, This is not an automated way to include value labels of a variable that do not have data!

In Crosstabus, Missing categories are not printed even if this is explicity set in syntax

So you have some data: e.g.

var1 <-  c1 c1 c1 c2 c2 c2
var2 <-  d1 d1 d1 d1 d1 d1

d2 dont exist in data, but it exists as category in data labels.

PSPP will not print it and will omit it!

However, when you are a statistician, and you would like to process multiple tables, this is awful, because you must searching which categories are missing per individual table...

This is taking huge amount of time! However, if even the missing category was printed... voila! All tables can be arrange easily in calc sheet... and you can make beautiful graphs to display their percentages....


/TABLES= var1 BY var2
