Needs more work, sorry!
Besides producing nice tables, big tables like crosstabulations are frequently a problem when you wish to present them in a readable and pleasing way, and - if they are very big - splitted in as few pages or slides as possible (why staying readable!).
This document gives some hints on the various facilities available in SPSS. The example uses crosstabs, but everything applies to all output frames that contain tabular information (Pivot tables), for instance regression output or tables of statistics.
