Transforming data in SPSS

#1
Hi,

I used to use SAS and I remember a very useful command which gave a ladder of transformations ( it applied and plotted about 9 of the most commonly used transformations to a variable so you could see which was the best).

I'm learning SPSS now and was wondering if there is a similar function in this package or do I have to manually try each transformation using TRANSFORM-Compute Variable and then DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS-EXPLORE?

Seems a bit tedious...
