Output Viewer in SPSS
1. When you perform any command in SPSS, the Output Viewer window opens automatically and displays a log of the actions taken and the associated output.
2. Primarily, the Output Viewer is where the results of statistical analysis are shown, but any command invoked through the drop-down menus or syntax will be printed to the Output Viewer. This includes opening, closing, or saving a data file.
If an Output Viewer window is not open when a command is run, a new Output Viewer window will automatically be created.
