I would like to ask how do I just obtain the polychoric correlation using my 16 variables (ordinal data) from SPSS data file?

I just need this correlation table and I just cant seem to get the commands right.

Best regards,

Put the variables on the CATEGORICAL list and ask for TYPE=BASIC; in the ANALYSIS command. You need to save the data from the SPSS file as a numeric text file.
