COMMAND INTERFACE STATA has a Statistics Menu in the style of SPSS. This enables the user to select an item from a pull down menu which opens a dialogue box in which you can build STATA commands. I will not go into detail on how to use this method of analysing data as I would encourage users to learn the commands so that they can write do-files and programs. However, one point that may be useful: The command issued by the dialogue box is submitted as if you typed it by hand. Therefore if you cannot remember the syntax of a command, using the dialogue box and then checking the command in the Review window is a good way to get a reminder.
