CTABLES is getting old and has been overtaken by tools like Q Research or GESStabs. I think significant improvements and more features are overdue. We might even need a complete new module. Please see what other software producers developed and try to be innovative, too.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||SPSS itself so that users are not obliged to buy additional tools elsewhere.|
How should it work?
More flexibility in how tables are composed, like having count and percentages in the same column or deleting unnecessary columns permanently; better excel export support; inclusion of images and easy coloring of cells without OUTPUT MODIFY; more consistent syntax without remedies like "STATS TABLE CALC" etc.; complete documentation etc.
|Priority Justification||SPSS needs some modern touch. Don't be musty any longer!|
