Selection Tab vs. Table Tab

The Selection tab and Table tab are often confused. Remember to use the Table tab to choose variables to include in the output table, and the Selection tab to reduce the number of records analyzed based on specific variables.

A case is excluded from your analysis if it does not pass the selection criteria of the Selection tab and match at least one table definition of the Table tab. In general, it is best to select your case subset on the Selection tab rather than relying on the table definitions to exclude cases.
