z test comparison between two correlations (one r negative and one r positive)
The following syntax program works for testing whether two sample
correlations are statistically different or not. However, when one of
the correlations is negative the program bombs. I cannot figure out what
I need to change in order to get it to run. Help appreciated. martin
Someone told me I could modify the macro and pass the arguments between
quotation marks, and them eliminate them before using MATRIX, but I
didn't test that.

"It is unwise to use a statistical procedure whose use one does
not understand. SPSS syntax guide cannot supply this knowledge, and it
is certainly no substitute for the basic understanding of statistics
and statistical thinking that is essential for the wise choice of
methods and the correct interpretation of their results".

Thanks for sharing your knowledge till now. I was wondering if you could again share on the following query:
I have one variable cluster which has cluster membership of each case. In total there are 3 clusters. I have another variable called gender. I wanted to see the column proportion testing that e.g. male in cluster one are significantly higher than in cluster two and so on. I could use custom table and drag the gender variable in row and cluster variable in column and then click test statistics and column proportions. But, unfortunately, it only shows the difference. I want the p-value of each proportion.
Can anyone share their thoughts on how to get the p-value for each proportion/comparisons.
