5.1.2 Listing the data

Once the data has been entered, you could type

PSPP> list /format=numbered.

to list the data. The optional text ‘/format=numbered’ requests the case numbers to be shown along with the data. It should show the following output:

           Data List
|Case Number| forename|height|
|1          |Ahmed    |188.00|
|2          |Bertram  |167.00|
|3          |Catherine|134.23|
|4          |David    |109.10|

Note that the numeric variable height is displayed to 2 decimal places, because the format for that variable is ‘F8.2’. For a complete description of the LIST command, see LIST.
