SPSS Macros are wonderful!
Macros are to syntax what syntax is to the Graphic User Interface (GUI): A big step forward.
If macro language did not exists, SPSS would have to invent it. Do try to learn macros! You will not regret it.
Once you know macros you find many use for them. It is for this reason that most macros are in the Syntax section of this site (there are in excess of 140 macros).
If you need a good book (IMHO) on syntax and macros, see SPSS Programming and Data Management.
If you do not know how to use a macro from this site see Someone posted a macro but I do not know how to use it!
Tip: to quickly find all macros, search this site for "!ENDDEFINE".
Are Macros still relevant?
Of course anything done with macros can be done using Python but I think macros can still be useful for simple jobs.
