Hello. I'm exploring some data I collected for the IAT. I tried the IAT script (http://www.millisecond.com/download/library/v3/IAT/IAT.sps), but I encountered a problem with the following bit: 
AGGREGATE OUTFILE = 'CRITERIA.SAV' / BREAK = SUBJECT ORDER / PCT_300 = PGT(FLAG_300,0)  / PCT_400 = PGT(FLAG_400,0) / PCT_10K = PGT(FLAG_10K,0) / AVELTNCY ERRORPCT = MEAN (LATENCY ERROR) / NTRIALS = N .

SPSS gives me the following error in the output:

>Error # 61 in column 21. Text: CRITERIA.SAV >The filename is not valid. >Execution of this command stops.

Am I supposed to specify a file name or something? It seems a rather basic syntax question, but any help is appreciated.

Best,

Ali

For SPSS problems / error messages please refer to SPSS support resources.

If you simply Google the error code you'll come across useful information such as

which suggests you don't have proper write permissions for the location you are trying to save criteria.sav to.
