I would be surprised if anyone on this mailing list runs R analyses through SPSS. What SPSS and SAS have done is to say, well people want to do analyses that are available in R that we can’t be bothered implementing, so we will give them an interface, and it seems not a very good one.

It should not take long to learn how to read in the data in R, produce the analysis and output the results. Try this http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/r/dae/tobit.htm

Any suggestions? Google search yields solutions that involve programming to my understanding which I am not capable of.
