SPSS
What is SPSS?
SPSS is a powerful statistics package.

Is any version of SPSS compatible with my Intel-based Mac (MacBook or MacBook Pro)?
Yes, SPSS 16.0 is currently supported on Intel-based Macs.

Where can I purchase SPSS 16.0 for Mac?
"SPSS Graduate Pack 16.0 for Mac" can be purchased from the SJU Bookstore. It can also be purchased online from www.academicsuperstore.com.

Is SPSS 11.0 or SPSS 13.0 compatible with my Intel-based Mac (MacBook or MacBook Pro)?

No, both SPSS 11.0 and SPSS 13.0 are not supported on Intel-based Macs.
Despite the fact that "SPSS 11.0.4 for Mac OS X" installs and works successfully (with no computational errors) on some of the new Intel-based Macs, the program does not install on some and crashes on others. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not install "SPSS 11.0.4 for Mac OS X" on your Intel-based Mac.
"SPSS Graduate Pack 13.0 for Mac OS X" that is available from the bookstore, and thus to the students, does not even install on the Intel-based Macs (there is a prohibitory sign on the installer file).

Why doesn't my SPSS 11.0 work on my PowerPC-based Mac (iBook or PowerBook)?
To operate without error on OS X v10.2.8 through v10.4 on PowerPC-based Macs, you must download and install the SPSS 11.0.4 for Mac OS X (Tiger) Patch.

Where can I download the SPSS 11.0.4 for Mac OS X (Tiger) Patch from?
You can download the patch from either the SPSS Technical Support site or from PsyNet.Stu.
   1. Connect to PsyNet.STU
   2. Double-click \Faculty\Applications\SPSS 11.0.4 for Mac OS X Tiger\SPSS 11.0.4 Installer
   3. If you have already installed the version you purchased from the bookstore, you should not need to reenter your serial number and/or License Code

Special note about copies of SPSS 16 owned by the University
SPSS 16 for Mac seems to have more functionality than SPSS 16 for PC
For example, if you click Analyze --> General Linear Model on the SPSS 16 for Mac menu bar, you will see choices such as Multivariate, Repeated Measures, and Variance Components that you wouldn't see in SPSS 16 for PC.


Difficulty opening Microsoft Office files (Part 1)
If you are having trouble opening Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents, check to make sure that the file name has the appropriate file extension:
   1. Word files should have .doc
   2. Excel files should have .xls
   3. PowerPoint files should have .ppt
If the file doesn't, add the appropriate extension manually. In the future you can avoid such problems by making sure that the box labeled "Append file extension" is checked when you go to save your documents.


Difficulty opening Microsoft Office files (Part 2)
If you are having trouble opening Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents, check to see if the file name has one of the following file extensions:
   1. Word: .docx
   2. Excel: .xlsx
   3. PowerPoint: .pptx
If the file does have one of these extensions, it means that the file was created in either Microsoft Office 2007 for Windows or Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. Since you are having difficulty opening the file, you are probably either running Microsoft Office 2003 for Windows or Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac.

If you are a Mac user, you can still open .docx and .pptx files if you download the
"Open XML File Format Converter for Mac 1.0.2".


Difficulty opening PDF files
If you are having trouble opening PDF files it may be because the file was downloaded with the wrong file extension. For example, you may have downloaded a file called "statistics.asp" and when you double-clicked on it, the computer didn't know which application to open it with. The solution is to the change the file extension from "asp" to "pdf". The file name would then be "statistics.pdf". When you double-click on the renamed file, it should open with no problem in either Preview, Adobe Reader, or Adobe Acrobat.
