    Afternoon, is there way to have SPSS statistics run automatically at a set time?  I'm running a file through syntax to produce a file, and then pulling the end file into powerbi.  It has to be done daily.  - Thanks for your help Arthur.

    Statistics does not have a built-in scheduler, but your operating system provides this.
    On Windows 7 and earlier, you could use the AT command.  In Win 10, this has been replaced with

    Run schtasks /? at a command prompt for details on how to do this.

    On Mac/Linux, you would use the similar cron command.

    Presumably you want to run Statistics as a batch job. - not the gui.  To do this you would use production mode.

    See this link on how to create a production job

    See this link on the command line options
