I have four factors for fourteen variables. I want to develop a regression expression for a dependent variable using the correlated variables.

The problem for me is to interpret the factor score or loading to develop the Multiple Regression.

Please Help

I am not clear on your question. You can obtain factor scores using the FSCORES option of the SAVEDATA command and use them in a subsequent analayis. You can also use the factors in a model with an observed variable. It is always better to model simultaneously rather than stepwise so I would suggest the second option.

Dear Linda,

Thank you very much for the answer.

But I actually found the solution after I have posted the question.
