Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Pivot table row and column choice for Frequency tables

In SPSS, when you sort by X, Y and Z, these variables are assigned to the tables as row headings by default (probably to facilitate layout display).  These items then need to be converted to column headings by dragging their variable names in pivoting trays in order to examine the information in a meaningful way, i.e. to put numbers of interest next to each other.  The idea is to put a check box in the Frequencies specification dialog to choose whether the 'sort' variables are to be row or column  headings.  It would be a tremendous work saver if the sort variables could be specified as column headings..

Frequencies are a very basic and commonly used process, and this modification has potential to be useful to a high percentage of SPSS users who analyze survey research data.
