SPSS, you muthas

Can anyone help me with stupid SPSS? (I love it, really)

As featured elsewhere on the internerd:

I have an SPSS question... I'm doing a binary logistic regression, and it gives you a table at the end that says how good it was at predicting things. In my example, it's predicting labour and conservative voters given their answers to some questions on the economy. I want to subcategorise these predictions by age group (I've got an age group variable already) but is there an easy way to do this short of making lots of age-group dummies and doing the regression 10 times... (assuming I've got 10 age groups....)?

Or alternatively do I have to do "select cases"? It seems like there should be some layering function...

Again, as posted elsewhere (last time I promise):
The answer was "Split file"

I love SPSS. Couldn't do my job without it. I'm on a course next week learning all about regression, using a mix of Minitab (nooooo!) and good ol' SPSS. Should be very entertaining.

Soon we upgrade to v16. Apparently there's some mad licensing shit whereby up to 100 folk may use SPSS at once, after which you are denied access. It's a joke - we have about 300 analysts. I'm gonna get in at 7am every day and keep SPSS running all day, muwahaha!
