With version 14, SPSS began using other means to supplement its functionality, first starting with the ability to work with Python. With version 16 it allows for usage of an entire other statistical program, R. If you can use either of those, odds are you probably wouldn't be using SPSS to begin with for academic research, however if interested in learning more, here is a zip file summary.
Due to its popularity, there is a vast amount of information on the web to get you started with SPSS, so we suggest you do some Googling to see what's out there regarding your specific SPSS situation as it's likely there is an answer available already.
