The solution that I have for SPSS 6.1.X and WIN3.X users, may or may not
solve their problems. Instead of Damon's approach of getting WP to
adjust the output, I adjust it in SPSS with a set command. Usually I
employ this command for banner tables, but I guess it would work for
crosstabs as well. The command, shown below, draws solid lines and
borders for a table.
Make sure to issue this command prior to the tables that you want to
change, and then, if you wish, you can return the boxes to their original
form with the command
The one draw back is that for tables made with this syntax, one must then
use a non-proportional font such as letter gothic for the tables to
appear "straight". Mind you, if you have already tried printing
crosstabs from WP you understand this problem already.
For users with WIN95 and SPSS 7.0, the procedure is even easier. Simply
select the table in the output navigator, press Ctrl+C (for copy), switch
to WP6.1 (or whatever) and press Ctrl+V (for paste), and presto, perfect
table within the document. If you want you can play in the table editor
to adjust shading and borders etc.
I hope this helps. Even more, I hope it is on topic since I lost the
