Archives of SPSSX mailing list happyFace2.gif (633 bytes) A very good resource to get help on SPSS related questions.
SPSS Community at IBM's developerWorks portal Has a link to The community of SPSS users (or, better say, users of IBM's SPSS family products), which is supported by the vendor. You'll find here technical papers, help and downloads not only for IBM SPSS Statistics, but also for IBM SPSS Modeler, IBM SPSS Collaboration & Deployment Services, and IBM SPSS Data Collection — major members of SPSS family. You may read the forums and, after a short registration procedure, you may post there. Many topics are related to programmability in SPSS. Downloads include R, Python and .NET integration plugins, utilities and extension commands which you could download, install and use in Statistics GUI or syntax as any other regular command.

Personal sites

Andrew Wheeler's Blog Andrew is a doctoral student in Criminal Justice at the University at Albany, SUNY. The blog contains, among other research stuff, materials on SPSS, syntax samples with comments and output examples. Several posts are devoted to charting facilities of SPSS, and GGRAPH command, in particular. I came across his site while looking for the SPSS syntax draft to draw violin plots in SPSS.
