Some features of factor analysis, such as factor scores variables or factor loading matrix, you can save right from FACTOR command. To save other statistics, use OMS-OMSEND facility which automatically saves content of user-specified output tables as data. "Utilities" menu items OMS Control Panel and OMS Identifiers will aid you to customize your request for saving.
